Description

P1- Friction up the beautiful, sometimes slippery slab to a belay on a rib of rock.(5.7 or 5.8)
P2- Move left to a prominent jam crack. From the top of the crack, move right out onto the face to a bolt. Belay 60' higher (5.8)... great pitch.
P3- Travers right and up to a roof. climb over this (bolt here) and move up to a fixed belay.
P4- Climb over several roofs to the midway ledge. A short distance above is another belay.
P5- Ascend the slab above past bolts and a pin to a belay below roofs.
P6- The roofs above require some cams. Once above the roofs, move right and up to the final belay (may be wet). Rap route.

It's possible that the Jam crack on pitch 2 is a section of the Beckey/Kor route

We named this route after the dead goat we found at the start of the climb.

Location

Start 30' above and right of the lowest point of the slab.

Protection

Small rack up to a #2 camalot.
