Description 

Begin near the far left edge of the Lower Great Face.

Climb easy rock to gain the first bolt. The recommended start climbs the short, shallow, clean, left-facing dihedral (gear) for 20 feet to it's end before moving right onto the initial slab to gain the first bolt. The rock steepens after the second bolt as you move up to a short vertical face covered with green lichen. Crux moves are encountered near the fourth bolt. Continue to the top on easy to moderate stone.

Gear can be placed before the 1st bolt, between the 2nd and 3rd bolts, and after the 4th bolt to gain the bolted anchor.

Two descent options exist:

Rappel the route with TWO 60 meter ropes,

or

Belay from the bolted anchor, then traverse left to the backside of the formation and walk down the talus slope on the north side, down to the base of the route.

Location 

'The Green Wave' is on the far left edge of the Lower Great Face. Approach as for Castaway Crag. Hike around the left (north) side of the Castaway and then head straight uphill to reach a beautiful black/grey slab that forms the far left edge of the Lower Great Face.

Protection 

4 bolts.

Rack to 2 inches, including small wires.

Bolted ring anchor.
