Description:

"The Green Mile" climbs the wonderfully pocketed face on the far right side of The Egg Cup buttress. Easily seen, to the left, as one walks up the trail into Texas Canyon. Climb the face and the rounded flake to a high 1st bolt. Continue up and right following the line of pockets to a large inclusion on the left. Where the pockets end the face bulges out to yield a crux on small fingery edges & small pockets to a last bolt and series of awesome pockets and the anchor.

Descent Options:

Rappel from the 2-ring Fixe anchor, below the ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Steep and Pumpy

We enjoyed some laps on the awesome pockets on the lower portion and the steep fingery top half.

4 out of 5 stars Sweet Pockets

Great pockets on a steep face. As the wall bulges the holds get smaller. Fun & exciting.

4 out of 5 stars pumpiest route in TXC

Hand holds are all very solid. Feet smearing however will make it rain little rocks all over the place. route needs some traffic to clean up a bit more.
