This is a steep sport climb that combines pumpy jug moves in the first half, a very thin, technical crux in the middle, and more pumpy and inobvious moves to finish. Some of the holds in the first half appear suspect, but I've done the route three times now and I don't remember ever breaking anything. Despite a bit of loose rock and a less-than-perfect bolt placement at the crux (near your feet for the hardest moves), this is a wonderful Flatirons sport climb.
A second pitch (5.12b) climbs over a bulge on very small holds.
This is on a steep, orange wall near the upper end of the Goose's south face. Start on the Sweet and Innocent
corner, step left on a ledge at a small tree about 25 feet up, and clip the first bolt by a gaping, undercling flake.
8 or 9 bolts to anchors. Bring long slings to extend the anchors for toproping. Maybe a few wires or small cams to protect the 30 feet of climbing to the first bolt.

A #3 stopper makes the move to the anchor much more comfortable. A great route in a beautiful setting. Full value 11a.

I cleaned all the loose rock off the first pitch last year. There was some scary and dangerous stuff indeed. Still needs to have the current bolts updated. Hope to get around to it this fall. Never talked to anyone who has done the second pitch, but I suspect it is kind of chossy as well.
