We recently climbed a new route at Big Green Mountain. This is my first posting of a new route on MP so if it should be somewhere else, let me know - the route is
NEW SPECIES, 5.10b/c

Start by locating Danger of Extinction (in the guidebook) and take the trail uphill - climber's left. Soon you will see a large left facing dihedral which is a route not in the guidebook called "Grand Delusion" 5.11a. Go up the Grand Delusion slab past two bolts and climb up and left above a small tree and around a corner (5.7) and gain the mossy ledge. There you will see a new bolt anchor. Continue up the beautiful left facing corner past 4 bolts (5.10 b/c) until the terrain backs off a bit. Take a combination of larger gear (up to a #3 camelot) and some small wires to make the terrain above bolt four less run-out. This pitch is nearly a full rope length and will take you to a new 2 bolt ring anchor. This pitch is directly above Doc Bayne's route, Danger of Extinction which involves some very serious run-out - we have recently replaced Doc's 2 FA bolts for what it is worth - - our pitch gets your attention and is steeper and harder but less dangerous. 2 rappels to the ground. FA: Shannon Stegg, Drew Dekle, Greg Allen, Ben Lyon, Margaret Tanner
