Start up the dihedral clipping the first three bolts way to the left. Maybe the line is supposed to climb directly up these bolts but that felt pretty contrived.

At the third bolt make an in obvious traverse left, then straight up the seem to the 4th bolt. From here make some powerful moves up a thin lieback crack / flake past the 5th bolt and continue on to the anchors.

Great from the third bolt to the anchors.


Shares the start with "Baba Louie" which is the dihedral that is less regular than "Green Eggs and Ham. Start is between "Quickdraw Mcgraw and the trad climb "Classic Jam Crack".
