Description

Green Mountain Pinnacle isn't. It is, however, at little jab of stone appended to the North flank of the Fourth Flatiron. It sits in the forest on the West (uphill) end of the Fourth Flatiron, but is sufficiently distinct that you can scramble all the way around it.

Getting There

Using Rossiter's North guide, Green Mountain Pinnacle would be the 8th named rock with The First Flatiron as #1. My guess is that people use many approaches to reach GMP. Our approach was always to hike the Mesa Trail to a spot South of the Third Flatiron. A trail heads up Bluebell Canyon, and after a short ways one can take off South of the trail and bush-whack to the apparent West end of the Fourth FI. This always felt as though we had hiked to near the top of the hill. When you finally see it well, through the trees, you won't miss it. The North wall is very yellow. If you look for it, you can see GMP from Baseline road in Boulder and pretty much keep a good eye on it hiking the trail.
