Tanya Chupa seconding Ross Purnell on Green Wall (...

Description 

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.

1st Pitch
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).

2nd Pitch
Climb the corner and left facing face thru the intimidating looking bulge.

3rd Pitch
Forth class scramble onto the proper summit


Location 

Green Wall follows a couple of corner systems, besides the large bare green face on the north end of the south Peak of Seneca.


Protection 

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.

Thought this would be some useful info for this awesome route. Just was up this route last week and once you top out the last pitch (scramble up the gully) there is a fairly good rap station RIGHT AT THE TOP. You crawl through a hole in the top fan of the rocks and can rap the east wall to the ground. A 70m double rope rappel WILL get you all the way to the ground, or single rope it with a 60 to one of the multiple bolted belay stations on that east face. Hope this helps
