Comments: I remember thinking this would be a lot better as a sport route than a gear route. Good upgrade in my opinion.

Comments: i have always parked just before the small pond (mud hole would be more accurate) that is on the right side when you are driving in. there is a small shale like hill that leads to a ridge, which goes pretty much straight up to the nice splitter hand crack. really cool wall.

Comments: i moved the old beta photo to 'unknown 10 left of variety pack'. the current photo shown above is linkage (per karl kelley, who put it up). hopefully that helps organize this area a bit.

Comments: I think you should go ahead and do it, I am pretty sure Richard would be on-board with anything that makes the route better and safer.

Comments: i did mystical, maybe a month or so ago and it is all bolts now. good route with some funky planar liebacking...

i also TR'd mars, but IIRC the upper part was insanely dirty, wet, and mossy.

Comments: the right hand exit (chimney sort of thing) wasn't bad, probably easy 9'ish if you are used to that sort of thing, but there are several not so great blocks above it, followed by ugly muddy bushwhacking or R/X rated face/arete climbing. this climbing is terrific, but harder than any of the other parts of the route.

overall, this route is infinitely easier than spineless, not too far to the right.

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.
