This is the green monster.


This route is up the hill under the cliff line, about 20 feet below the mid-cliff. Notice the vibrant green and black face. Sit start on the tiny crimp with scarce feet, next move is a mono pocket up to the left, then to a tiny crimp on the right and finish with a sloper and top out. The whole thing is overhung and sick!


A few boulder pads and a good spotter, a rock makes the fall a painful one.

I'm not sure if you are talking about the line the goes along the arete, but if you are it is called "Outlaw" and goes about V6-ish or a little harder.

I just went up there with the person who submitted this route after he had put it on the website and I sent the route... I'd say its a more like V4/V5 probably. Its a great problem! It goes up the center of the face in really bright green lichen. It starts on a jug, but I think if it could be done from a sit-start it would be V8 maybe, eitherway its a great problem.

Is there a dyno at the end?

No, it goes off a full pad crimp thing with a big.. but not dyno move to a tiny crimp. Your feet pop off but its just because they suck not because its a dyno. Its an awesome problem

I did this with someone a couple years back. We always called it "the green mile". Good route. I don't know what the V grade is. A bit of a huck though. I'm 6.4 and its a toss for me.

I did the route with Jason Parrot or Bert (can't remember the last name) a couple of years back. We always reffered to it as the Green Mile. I am not very good at rating boulder problems so I won't even try.

The "handholds" are pretty small although good enough for purchase. Problems arise when you get above the holds during the toss. Feet are pretty crappy, but some smears on sharp points make the problem go for me. The catch at the top is sharp.

I could never send this without a spotter. Close but I just couldn't commit. Good move though. There is some pretty good bouldering around there.

Whoever wrote this really sucks at describing this problem.From what I heard, it starts on the obvious two handed full pad edge on the right side of the green face. From here you do one hard move to the big hold at the lip. I've also done two variations to this problem. One starts on the massive jug on the left side of the boulder and traverses on good egdes and really bad feet to the Green Monster dyno and then finishes for that problem. It's called "The Hulk" and I feel it's hard V9. The other problem starts on the central arete on really low sit start starting with two obvious holds. From here climb the arete to a hard match in the corner. Reach to the Green Monster start hold and cut the feet(the crux). Keep traversing left untell it is possible to go up over the slightly overhanging face on the left side of the main face. You have to a blind slap to a invisible hold over the top of bulge. Top out. I call "The Green Mile" since it's about 16 moves long and I believe it's about V10.
