Access issues inherited from Greensprings

Greensprings is on private property, so access depends on good relations with the landowners. As always, practice a "leave no trace" ethic. Keep noise levels down. Pick up any trash you see. In particular, respect the owners' privacy by not wandering back beyond the top of the lower cliff band.

Haul through the sustained overhanging rock on jugs to gain the face. Traverse right on edges and climb the arête to the top.

FFA: Joe Chaves, 2001

Thin crack to the left of Boys Who Ain't French. Pro to 1".

Fun, technical climbing on small holds characterize Greensprings' first sport route. Both the arête to the left and Sky Patrol to the right are off-route. Consider a clip stick or rely good holds and quality rock for the 15ft to the first bolt.

Climb the 5.8 crack to a 5.10a move above small gear. Usually top-roped. Pro to 1".

Climb the pair of cracks to the right of Sky Patrol.

Climb Procrastinating Aliens using only the right crack.

Avoid the crack to the right.

Use the crack to the right.

FFA: Dan Higgins & Cory Jones

Usually top-roped.

Bring a clip stick to avoid the R safety rating. If top-roping, bring long slings for the top anchors. Pro to 2.5".

Not recommended. The detached column is dangerously loose. The top is chossy and run out. No good top anchor. Pro to 2.5" if you're not yet dissuaded.
