Description

Rumor has it that the FA of this route was done by a local goat. It, and its neighbor Jeff Loves Eileen, make good beginner climbs, and take good gear as well.

Location

The first large slab to the left of the large metal tower is the Jeff Loves Eileen face. The graffiti for which it's named is mostly obscured now. The face is split by two prominent, diagonal cracks; Jeff Loves Eileen is the one on the right; Goat Crack (5.2) is on the left.

Protection

TR; there are bolts on top for setting an anchor.

A great place for beginners to start. The crack's really good for passive gear if you don't have the budget for cams quite yet. There's also a large boulder on the top to set up solid top rope anchors. Dec 15, 2007
I agree, this climb can be sewn up with a set of nuts and some doubles in the off fingers size. Nov 21, 2009

Great gear the whole way up. Nuts down low, you can place a small cam (purple and green camalots) towards the top. The official guide for the area list this at 5.4 or 5.5. I'm inclined to agree it's harder than 5.2, though maybe 5.5 is highly optimistic. Apr 21, 2014
This is the only climb that has been climbed so much that it is glass now for a few of the holds. Nov 22, 2017
