Description 

Goofy Spire was first published in Ament and Erickson's 1972 guidebook to climbing around Boulder: "5.10." Goofy Spire is also listed in Ament and McCarty's 1976 and 1985 editions of "High Over Boulder."


Getting There 

Goofy Spire is 0.4 miles west of Boulder, up CO Highway 119. It sits not too high above the highway, across Boulder Creek from the Fourth Elephant Buttress. After leaving town, the prominent, left-facing dihedral on Goofy's narrow east face is the first obvious route in Boulder Canyon.

This is a little route with a bit of variety that is on the shady wall to the right of the Goofy Spire. It may have been climbed previously.
