Comments: couple questions about goat dome;

1) is the trail that branches off from the snow creek trail pretty obvious?

2) is it in pretty good shape or deathschwack?

3) does the top of the dome have a fairly straightforward walk off?

thanks!

Comments: i think that is a route that used to have a plaque that said "lift kit" (although there was already a route by that name at 4x4). it starts with kind of a funky mantle sort of move into an off fingers splitter over a little roof, and then moves around a minor arete to the left into a steep corner? pretty long? would be pretty hard for 10+ ?

Comments: a quick conditions update; due to moving/poor planning/etc i didn't round up any hangers prior to climbing. the last pitch still only has 2 hangers (the first one off the ledge, and one about midway up. there are nuts and washers on all of the bolts, but it is handy to have a little wrench to loosen and tighten the nuts, depending on how fat the wires are on your stoppers, etc. when i did it, the wind was blasting through the gap, and even with cinching down the stoppers, a handful... more >>

Comments: Not sure why somebody getting on it who otherwise wouldn't is a crime. How does it compare to bolting a bunch of routes you have no hope of ever sending? In the grand scheme of things, neither is a big deal.

Comments: cool, thanks, good to know. would an 80m rope get you down from the top, or are there anchors at the top of the 1st pitch? trying to see if i can hobble up the hill with as little as possible. thanks.

Comments: Definitely a hidden gem. A LOT of good, intricate climbing on this thing. Also, a lot of really neat rock features. This would be a hard onsight.

Comments: Ummm, you would literally have to be 9 feet tall to grab the pocket with your feet on the flake. I would think being short would be better in terms of not being so coiled up on the feet.

Comments: I was really surprised at how hard and sustained the climbing is on this route. I had heard that getting to the first bolt was the crux, and 5.11 beyond that. Getting through the start is the least of the problems on this thing. The 30 foot section of dusty black glass in the middle of the route is brutal, and the bolts are really far apart.

I think my homey b hof is on drugs - for us simple folk who put our pants on one leg at a time, this route is the thing of nightmares!

Comments: This route is currently the 6th bolted route from the left. When I first posted these routes, "Cup of Java", which is now the leftmost route, didn't exist.

Comments: Cool, thanks for the info, Glenn. The 2nd Shelf guide (Van Horn, Falcon) listed it as unknown and called it 5.11 with a question mark (IIRC). =Rico's guide called it 12d, same with Bob D's.

When I first tried it, there was definitely some loose stuff on it, including a dinner plate that came off and almost killed one of my friend's kids below (don't tell him, I don't think he knows, he or the yo... more >>

Comments: I would say a main Turkey rack would be a set of stoppers, set of Aliens (or other micro), and a double set of Camalots from 0.5 to 3, and a #4.

Maybe a set of RPs or other micro wires if you are getting on something super thin, and maybe some bigger cams if you are getting on something wide. The bigger cams would be helpful if you aren't solid on wide stuff in general, as a lot of the routes have wide sections of varying length.

Hope that helps, have fun. Great place.
