Getting There

Goofy Spire is 0.4 miles west of Boulder, up CO Highway 119. It sits not too high above the highway, across Boulder Creek from the Fourth Elephant Buttress. After leaving town, the prominent, left-facing dihedral on Goofy's narrow east face is the first obvious route in Boulder Canyon.
