Description 

This is a surprisingly short route for the east face in the Flatirons (only a little over 1 pitch). There is also only a single hard friction move, otherwise the climb is much easier.

Directly south of the summit of the Last Flatironette is a gash in the middle section of the Fourth Flatiron called Fern Alley. Scramble up into this gash, until just below a huge flake wedged diagonally in Fern Alley. Rope up, and climb some huge jugs out of the north side of Fern Alley. You are now on the East Face of Green Mountain Pinnacle, but a smooth slab bars progress. Traverse north below this slab (crux), then climb easily up the face, joining the Green Sneak route after about 100', and then continuing to the top.

Descent either by the Green Sneak route or rap 80' NW to the ground.


Protection 

Light rack.

I noticed a nice looking hand crack about 10' past the regular start to this route when I went up to do it. I wasn't inspired by the regular start, especially unroped, and decided to try the crack. It went at about 5.2 (or F4) - I'd recommend it.
