Take CO Hwy 9 up Hoosier Pass to County RD 850 up to the lower Blue Lake. In the early season, you can park at a pullout where the road forks, the left fork goes towards a private cabin (do not enter or block) and the right fork goes to upper Blue Lake dam. The Golden Goat Buttress is directly above the fork in the road.
