BETA PHOTO: Green Gecko

Description 

Green Gecko has no beta in "Bishop Area Rock Climbs" other than 5 stars so we had to go check it out!

1st Anchor: 10a
Climb a very nice finger/wide finger crack in a dihedral. We thought this felt more like 10b/c. 60ft

2nd Anchor: 11b
Climb past the 1st anchor and into the wide pod. Exit the pod into a finger-sized layback, and mantle onto the ledge to the right. 100ft

3rd Anchor: 12c
Skip the 2nd anchor and crank through a tips layback underneath a bulge with slick feet. 120ft

Protection 

Doubles to 3", extra small if going to the 3rd anchor. 70m rope.
