Follow the left facing dihedral about 50 feet to the right of the big pine, and belay at the toop of the pinnacle (Green Dagger Buttress). Traverse left across the ledge system to a nice vertical crack and corner system, then up this to a belay at the left edge of a ledge leading back to the right under a roof. Traverse to the right, and up a short crack/corner pitch, then up the stacked blocks to the top.

The original Granite Mountain book rates this route at 5.6+...which is slight understatement as usual for this area. I'm not sure if we really started on the first pitch of Green Horns or not (the dihedral was right-facing, not left): I started the first pitch but ended up backing down on the crux which was OW, unprotectable with the gear I had (you need a #6), super water polished foot smears, and the "good" hand holds were one sketchy, intermediate move out of reach for someone of my height. I tried to arm bar through it but my girth wasn't big enough to wedge myself in and worm up, although my partner shredude was able to do so. The route is stellar and keeps your mind engaged with tons of different techniques required!
