Vince Bates nearing the final moves of the George ...
Steep face climbing on jugs to steeper jug hauling near the chains. At one point you have the choice of going straight up or working right. this description is for the right finish. I have not done the direct finish.
This route starts on the right face just outside the big chimney you encounter when you first descend to the routes.

The straight-up route is the original, FA Tony Lusk. The name is "Green Monster". The variation is "George..." and the FA is some old bald guy.

Wow! This line is incredibly fun. I was intimidated at first due to the overhang and seemingly suspect rock but my fears were unfounded. The rock is solid and holds reveal themselves. Amazing exposure, especially pulling the last roof.
Thanks to the FAs for putting the time and energy into cleaning this route.

Good stuff. Rating not as stiff as other climbs in the area, probably solid 5.11. Definite crux section leads into a no hands rest and jug pulling. Would definitely hop on it again

When Miles and I scoped this out from the ground, we were hoping it was the elusive 5.13 that this crag needed. When it turned out the holds were big and the route was only 5.11, Miles totally lost interest.
