Description

BaaaD To The Bone picks a largely bullet-proof way through the middle sector of Goat Rock. Goat Rock is actually composed of three 100-hundred foot tiers separated by broad terraces. BTTB starts on the first of these terraces. Hike left around the main base crag and pick a careful path to a knarled old pine. A double bolt belay awaits at the base of the route, 20 ft right of the pine. Wander up 100 ft on great stone. The minor friable edges have been cleaning up nicely, and what remains is crisp, sharp, and solid. Some things just make you feel glad to be alive, this was one of them. FFA went to Noi's onsight.

Protection

Ten draws and a 60 meter rope. Since this pitch runs up on less than vertical stone, passing some ledges near the top, we would suggest bringing up a second rather than top roping, which generates significant rope drag. A 60 meter rope will rap comfortably to the belay.
