Description

After a reasonable night's sleep in our Air BnB in Cody, Wyoming, we headed back to the South Fork for another day of climbing.  The approach for Mean Green is basically the same as High On Boulder except you have to hike farther northeast on a well-defined trail to get to the base of the Mean Green drainage.  Every pitch was a bit more challenging than we thought it would be, but we made it up the climb above pitch 4 and then returned to the trailhead.  We had dinner at the Proud Cut Saloon again and then crashed hard at the cabin after a great day of climbing.
