Description

This is probably the best route on the Tall Green Wall.

Both pitches are 5.10c. The first pitch has a poor belay stance. The second pitch goes to the highest point on the wall. The two pitches can be combined with a 70m rope.

Protection

P1 has 10 bolts and P2 has 6 bolts.

From what I understand, it was just a loose nut. Consider carrying a small crescent wrench with you in sport areas to tighten nuts that get loose over the years. Love this route! Nov 15, 2016

I wish that I could say that I fixed the left anchor that is currently wiggling in its hole in the rock, but that would not be honest. I actually don't own a proper drill rig (although I do possess the necessary equipment for removing the bolt). Regardless, the left anchor is in bad shape, and I really hesitated to even thread the rope through it, because I figured that if it blew, it might shock the right anchor. If someone does have the inclination and equipment, that left bolt should be fixed. Oct 31, 2016
To enjoy this route, do it as a single pitch using a 70 meter rope (KNOT THE ENDS). The mid anchor sucks. You will end up 10 feet short of the the ground, but you can make it work. May 9, 2016
