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!
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.

Super classic. There are two ways to approach the upper section. I am describing the original start, which takes the most direct line. This way also makes the route best done as one long pitch.Start in the huge dihedral downhill from The Green Adjective. This is also the same start as Touch Up and Perhaps.Climb the dihedral, which is very moderate for the first fifty feet or so. Continue up through slightly increased difficulty to a big undercling flake.Traverse ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
