At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Dinosaur mountain is a sub peak of Green Mountain above Table Mesa. Numerous small crags - both slab climbs and steeper more modern face climbs.
Approach as for all of Skunk Canyon at first, via the Devil's Thumb or NCAR access to the Mesa Trail and into the Skunk Canyon trail. Follow this back past any semblance of a good trail, past the 4 Ridges on the North Side. Missing the "toe" of the North Ridge of Dinosaur Mountain on your left. It is just 100 yards past the Dreadnaught and missing it in all of the trees is not hard to do. If you pass it, it is recognizable from the West as being a few sharp 200' spires to on the Southern Side of the canyon. Go back downhill and climb this, the final ridge of rock on the South side of Skunk Canyon (North end of Dino Mt). This will not appear to be a 2000' line at first, but many false summits later, you will find yourself at the very tip of Dinosaur Mountain.
