A worthwhile pitch with good moves. From the Weedkiller belay, head up and right via a thin flake-line to the break and a rest. Then head up and rightwards via fingery moves to the belay. Starting up the Green Alternative gives Let's Get Green, 7c+.

Not a bad wee route. Only neglected cos you have to haul up the rope over the weedkiller roof to get to the start. If it went from the ground it would get much more traffic. Nice exposed crimping and totally unpolished!

If you climb the Green Alternative first and finish up this, I reckon it gets 8a even though the Green Alternative is probably 7c and not 8a. I called it 'The Green Turkey' - I'm sure its been done b4, its a nice link and is always dry.
