Description Suggest change

Kid Goat has several single pitch and multi pitch sport routes as well as a few classic trad routes. The rock type is limestone of moderate to poor quality, though the trade routes are typically of very high quality. Climbing is best on Sunday when the dump is shut down, otherwise it can be very loud while climbing.

The longest routes are 6 pitches long and come in at ~200 meters. The wall is a great place to try limestone, trad climbing before moving on to Yam. The wall is east-facing and gets plenty of morning sun. It takes longer to dry then Yamnuska, try from April on.

Getting There Suggest change

After crossing 1A from the parking lot, to head on the west side, take the first left on the road. Hike down the road with the dump to your right. You can connect with the main trail by turning right into the lot with the mobile home and generator, and then follow that up between Kid Goat and Nanny Goat. Or you can continue further down the road and take the next right turn down to a dead end with heavy machinery. Hike over the berm at the back of the dead end and look for a faint loggers trail headed north, which will meet up with the main trail.
