A fun full rope length climb in a nice position on the cliff... Climb the slab passing a steeper bulge two-thirds of the way up... Then more moderate fun to the anchor...
In the early season this climb can be a bit thin at the bottom but still be in good shape at the top... If you have the skill and a steady nerve it climbs well when its like this cause the steep climbing is still protectable typically...
Once ice season is in full swing Goofers is usually fat all the way...
This is the big smear of ice on the left side of the Thin Air Face...
Belay from the two bolt anchor at the base of Airation Buttress...

Regular selection of screws... A few shorties might help in early season...

While at the pitch 4 belay on The Prow, I witnessed a red squirrel slip and take the big plunge off the top of Goofers, flipping and flopping down the ice all the way to the snow at the bottom, where it proceded to run unharmed down the slope.

Can someone add more details about the location? Or more information about the location of "Thin Air Face". I was at North end Pillar and Slab and don't recall seeing this climb. Thank you.
