Description 

This fine route starts to the left of Virgin Springs and finishes at the Melvin's Wheel anchors on P1. The pitch starts with a gently committing seam with hard to place gear, until the 15ft level. Place a green Alien or two and follow 5 bolts on the face to the left. This climb is slightly easier than Bellyflop, but the climbing is more continuous. The face climbing is very enjoyable and goes on small edges. Almost three stars....


Location 

It is located directly below the Melvin's Wheel anchors on p1. You can either scramble some low fifth class rock from the start of Backflip to the base, or rap in from Mevlin's Wheel.


Protection 

Gear to #0.5 Camalot.

I believe this is called The Goose, installed by Celin Serbo and Co. I found it to be a nice pitch with good variety.

Yo. This route is called "The Goose". It was put up by myself and Kerry Cowan around the summer of 2002. We gave it a rating of 5.10c, but I am a pretty poor slab climber. Hope folks are enjoying it.

Great route. The move to the big hold about a third of the way up is one of the best I've made on the ridge.
