Description Suggest change

The Southern Goose Egg appears above the Fern Canyon Trail like a small, perfect Flatiron; with the higher pyramidal North summit and perfectly matching lower South summit split by a moderate class 4 gully. The strata is, in essence, the lowest of the Nebel Horn ridges, it position guarding the entrance to Fern Canyon.

Getting There Suggest change

Finding the Southern Goose Egg is easy, and can be accomplished from any number of trailheads that will get you on to the Fern Canyon Trail. From any trailhead the approach is long. Once past the intersection with the North Shanahan trail, the Southern Goose Egg will appear above a clearing. The Southeast ridge rises just right and above the Slab Overlook on the Fern Canyon Trail. Follow a small trail uphill to the base of the crag.
