Getting There

Take CO Hwy 9 up Hoosier Pass to County RD 850 up to the lower Blue Lake. In the early season, you can park at a pullout where the road forks, the left fork goes towards a private cabin (do not enter or block) and the right fork goes to upper Blue Lake dam. The Golden Goat Buttress is directly above the fork in the road.
Please respect the mining claims in this area. Details
