The Green Adjective

Description 

The Green A gully sits between two large rock buttresses, and has a fairly long approach by LCC standards. On the left of the gully is the Perhaps Wall (with the Green A), and on the right is the Schoolroom area. The walls up there are extremely steep and smooth, producing some of LCC's hardest free routes, as well as many aid lines.

On the approach up, it is really interesting to check out the remains of the huge rockfall that happened in '98. A giant slab of rock with at least one bolt and rurp which used to be high up the face (Nip and Tuck 5.12b), now sits down on the ground!


Getting There 

Park at the Gate Buttress parking area (1.25 miles up the canyon). Follow the approach trail up to the Green A on the Perhaps wall. From here, just continue upwards in the gully with some scrambling required at times. Climbs exist on both sides of the gully.
