Aye there!

I actually have no idea, does any other models have that, but 7D has - raw files SOOC come with very nasty looking green shadow cast. Not always, but enough times. While I was working in agency, I even instantly could tell, which image has been shot with 7D.

There are ways to get rid of it in post, but those that I know of, require a nice chunk of time. Does anybody know of a good and effective way to get rid of it [preferably in LR already?].

I know, it's 2015 and nobody shoots with 7D, but still :]

Try adjusting the black point of the green channel in the Curves dialog.

Under what sort of lighting and why is it so difficult to rid of it in raw?

Be interested as a few of my friends shoot raw in 7D models with no comments about the cast.

It looks like this. It does not depend on lighting conditions and not even just shadows. This wall does not have so much green.

As a fast remedy I can use Tint slider to introduce more magentas, but it's pretty unstable result wise.

Personally I would drop this into Canon's own DPP software and see what the result is like. It maybe something in LR software.

Putting an xrite passport in an adjoining image is a foolproof way.

Any chance your camera is set to AdobeRGB and the processing is messing up the color profile along the way?

But will this rule out a glitch in LR?

Can you post a link to download a sample raw file that exhibits the issue?

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for...just used basic workup in LR.
Profile is portrait>100 sharpening>clarity +25>blacks +30>temp 5600>tint +13
Your image showed a temp +7250>tint +10

FWIW, IMHO, there is room for improvement in PS.

I took a look at the raw file you posted - there is no problem in the shadows. There is some CA (green-magenta) along the dark pant legs of the woman in the red shirt and the white jacket sleeve of the climbing subject, and some noise throughout the image. In this image, the wall has several subtle variations in color, including green. Even if you white balance off of the approximately neutrals (the climber's jacket or eyes, the woman in the red shirt's pants or shoes) you still get green variation in some of the rock. In other words, some of the rock has green in it.

Maybe you can point to a particular area that contains the green cast or defect in the shadows.

I dropped your file into canon dpp and noticed straightaway you have camera set for 'shade' white balance. I changed that to 'auto' and another try 'daylight' and green cast is gone. It's purely a white balance issue that I can see.
