From Green Lake I once (and younger) scrambled up the rocky slide to Pagoda Mountain peak (13,497 feet), which is next to Longs Peak. Climbing the edge at the top was not for those with fear of heights. I know what you mean by gnarly stuff. Some peaks, or the way up, are jagged edges. Always best to be prepared.
