The right most route of four new lines left of Satyr is Goat Goes Up, Must Come Down. It dodges two huge, ugly flakes by moving left up a clean, solid, face and finishes in a shady corner. The start is fingery but not overly difficult. A committing clip arises below the final bulge, but his can be made off of a terrific hold left of the bolt; just look around. Like everything else in the Alpine setting, climb carefully on this route.
Eleven draws and a 60 meter rope.

Excellent line up bomber rock. Fun, fluid moves turn pumpy and steep, but the bolts stay close enough to avoid any ugly fall potential.

Aha! We did this route today after hiking uphill to check out Ra. I thought it was about a 10d as well. Such a variety of cool moves on this one. This rock is very similar to Clear Creek. Some of it is still granite, but other rock has clearly been metamorphosed. Good stuff.
