Forossky Kant. Routes "Of the green corner"

In the end of January we (Alexander Lavrinenko and Sergey Pugachev) send the new route in the left part of Forossky Kant, by the left edge of "The Green corner". The route looks so logically, that it's surprisingly why it hasn't been sent before. In the corner there are human traces, but I don't know if is passed up to the top, at least there are 2 descent loops.
The route starts in the same place with the left variation of Kant po Kantu, and it goes to the left.

R0-R1: The beginning goes along the corner (8m, III), then go to the left and upwards (20m, I-II), to the vertical wall with a crack. Difficult climbing with AID along the crack (10m, V+, A1). The belay is on the tree.
V+, A1, 38m

R1-R2: Go upwards along the crack, difficult climbing with AID (20m, VI, A1), then move by easy rocks (20m, III) to the ledge. The belay is on your own points.

R2-R3: Go upwards by the crack, then move upwards and to the right, to the group of trees

VI, A2, 35m

Then on foot go to the plateau.
On the rout е hooks are needed, in addition tostoppers and friends. We ascended in temperature about 0°C, may be it is possible to ascend the route without AID in warm period.

On the right side of the the Green corner there is an easier route.

On the right side of the "The Green corner" through the cornices 5 А , VI, 400m, В .Timofeev , 1981

You can start the like the previous one, the main thing is to reach the big ledge.
