Fragile Alpine Area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

One of the most famous problems in Colorado, Jade was known as "The Green 45 Project" for years. Many good climbers could not connect "The Move" and the problem gained notoriety as a result. Daniel Woods linked it in 2007, and a number of repeats have been done since. The grade has been a matter of controversy since the first ascent, but consensus is lowering it to hard V14.

Start low on two small crimps on the right edge of the wall. Move to a terrible hold for the right hand and stab out left for a thin, sharp crimp. This is "The Move." If you can hold this crimp, bump the right hand to a decent sidepull, then a hard move to a higher left sidepull. After this, move up to good rails and the top. After the bottom, the problem backs off considerably with a tall, somewhat fragile finish.

Location 

This is the rightmost problem on the Green 45 Wall.

Protection 

Several pads and a spotter. The highball finish should not be an issue if you do the bottom.
