Description Suggest change

HootGoat is the Dome located between the Muttonhead and Mount Chaktar. It is distinctly separated from the other two features by distinct passes. For sunny and hot days, the northeast shoulder of HootGoat offers some good moderate shaded lines that are fairly easily accessed via the descent trail from Sheepshead.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up the descent trail from Sheepshead to the pass between Sheepshead and Muttonhead. Follow a sparsely cairned 3rd class scramble up the northeast shoulder of Muttonhead (which also serves as the descent from Muttonhead). scramble across the hidden forest just below Muttonhead's summit pinnacle to a pass separating Muttonhead from HootGoat. Directly above you is a 100' face that serves as the rap line from the summit of Hootgoat. Make your life easy by dropping your packs here (to pick up on the return trip) and heading down the gully for 15 minutes to the northeast to reach the bottom of the northeast buttress and the location of "While My Drill Gently Weeps".
