An easy 5.7 by Seneca standards. Greenwall is in the shade for a lage portion of the day, and fairly protected fom the wind.
Go up a short corner system. There are three cracks. The one is too big for most gear. Climb the middle one. Probably the crux of the route. Traverse across the large ledge and belay as close to the corner as you can. Trees and larger gear (#3).
Climb the corner and left facing face thru the intimidating looking bulge.
Forth class scramble onto the proper summit
Green Wall follows a couple of corner systems, besides the large bare green face on the north end of the south Peak of Seneca.
Gear up to 3 inches for the second belay.

This climbs the amazing green wall just left of pleasant overhangs. It follows a obvious corner from top to bottom. The first pitch, has 3 crack corners to choose from, I took the middle one, to a big ledge. The second pitch is what this climb is all about. It is airy and spectacular, The rock is excellent. It uses a lot of smaller gear even though the crack is quite large. The last pitch is just a top out. Much fun.
