Upper Green Sleeves is characterized as two-prongs of greenish ice spilling out of dense trees at the same height and to gully left of Hang Over. Approach: If approaching from Lower Green Sleeves; wander up and left, staying relatively low, to a small talus field. Cross the talus and continue through a short section of trees to the gully. Since you can expect a well-defined trail leading more or less straight up towards Hang Over, it is easy to get sucked right up to that route. Traversing from Hang Over to Upper Green Sleeves is an exercise in bushwhacking across steep sidehill gouging. If in doubt, traverse left before reaching the talus slope below Hang Over. Otherwise park as for Sleeping Giant and approach directly up the gully.

Descent Options:

Double rope rappel, and possibly a short easy down climb

4 out of 5 stars Rolling buldges

We end up climbing the left side with 4 screws, I would guess the rating was a wI2sih. The right side is steeper, maby WI3
With a 60m and a 50 m we ended up down climbing 20 feet or so from the tree on the right with ton of webbing a quicklink. Over all fun route and not one I would do on its own but if I m at hangover it defiantly worth climbing
