Green Savior Direct, start to the Triple Direct

Falcon Closures from February 2 until July 15. MORE INFO >>>


This route links Green Savior Direct(P1) to Crisco Way(P2) to Green Savior(P3&4). A much more sustained wide crack outing and great link up if you want to crank hard on a classic Granite Mountain line(not recommended for a leader breaking into the grade). **Also watch out for your second on the traverse from Crisco way to the base of Green Savior, its tricky to protect and is exposed, a fall could be less than ideal for the follower.

Descent: Walk off Swamp Slabs or rapp the Coke Bottle


The beginning is just right of the standard Green Savior start and just left of Once in a Blue Moon and Witblitz Direct(10a). You scramble up through a small Ponderosa Pine and will see a finger crack going straight up from a small section of slab with a horizontal crack separating the slab and finger crack, this is the start. This will get you to the same belay as if you did the regular Green Savior start and line you up for Crisco Way.


Two #4's will be comfortable, standard GMT rack otherwise. You can also look at Green Savior for other protection options.
