Looking up Triple Overhangs. Green Gremlin is the...

Description 

Green Gremlin looks better from the ground than it actually is. Climb the left side of the block to the first ledge. Instead of heading left for Triple Overhangs, walk right and climb the corner with a pair of small trees growing out of it. The crux is probably avoiding the trees along the route the lower one is especially awkward to get around. Continue up easier rock past two more small trees to the top of the wall. To descend, sling the trees at the top of the cliff and rap with a single rope or walk off left and follow the trail to the End Crags.

Location 

This shares the start with Triple Overhangs right of the tree trunk and up the left side of a large block.

Protection 

Light rack with small to medium gear.

Would be a better climb without all the trees.

For a more interesting start, you can begin with the dirty offwidth crack that is around to the right, and directly below the first big ledge. There's some regular-sized gear in the horizontals, and a BD #6 would probably fit the crack itself.
