Description Suggest change

This is the easiest way to top out from the large ledge at the base of the crux pitches of Green Slab Direct, Green Sleeves, etc. The route takes a groove just to the left of that face and tops out after two pitches.

Start at the left side of the ledge by a tree. Climb the groove and belay in a nice alcove (100 feet). Climb straight up out of the alcove, past some loose blocks and a bit of chossy rock (standard Eldo fare for less-traveled routes), and continue more or less straight up until you can bear left towards a large tree near the top (120 feet).

(The route name and first ascent information were obtained from Steve Levin's guidebook to the canyon.)

Location Suggest change

This routes starts by a tree just to the left of the start of the crux pitch of Green Sleeves. Get yourself to that ledge via Green Spur, Green Slab, Green Slab Direct, Grandmother's Challenge, etc.

After topping out, descend via the Rewritten walkoff back to the Redgarden Trail.

Protection Suggest change

Standard Eldo rack. No bolts or fixed anchors.
