Description

This stunning peak overlooks the south fork of the Bishop Creek drainage. The beautiful North Buttress will immediately catch a climber's eye, and a 2nd-class route up the South-East slope provides access for non-climbers as well as an easy descent route. The routes on this peak can easily be done car-to-car in a day.

Getting There

Start at the South Lake trailhead and hike toward Bishop Pass. For the easy 2nd class route to the summit, follow the trail to Bishop Lake (~ 3.5 mi), then look for use trails up the South-East slope for the 2nd class route.

To access routes on the main north Buttress, follow the trail roughly 2.5 miles to the inlet of Long Lake, just past the lake cross the creek and head west and uphill on faint trails leading up the drainage to Margaret Lake. Do not ascend the steep nasty glacial morraine which looms above Margaret Lake directly towards Goode. Instead from the north side of the lake follow faint climber trails which contour due west and up the obvious drainage to the right of the steep nasty scree slope. Nice walking up grassy slopes and granite slabs leads up this drainage about 1 mile until the drainage peters out into steep talus to the south (towards Goode). Leave the drainage and gain the talus top to where Goode is clearly visible, continue towards Goode on talus for another 1/4 mile to the base of Mt. Goode. 4.5 miles 2500 feet of gain.
