Description

This circuitous route is the easiest way up Green Mountain Pinnacle.

From the west side of GMP, head up into a chimney which splits the summit. It is a bit tricky getting into this chimney while staying on 3rd Class terrain. From here, "Takin' Care of Business" heads straight up, but for the Green Sneak, walk through the chimney, then scramble north out onto the East Face, and follow that to the top (quite exposed and similar to the 3rd Flatiron Standard Route but less than 80' long).

Descend either by reversing your ascent route or rap 80' NW to the ground.

[Hide Comment] Downclimbed it after 'Taking Care of Business'. The moves felt considerably harder than anything on NE face of 5th Flatiron (5.6), which I've done just before that. So heads up if you don't have rope. Apr 25, 2013
