Scramble up to the base of the diagonal, golden band of rock. The climb is 2 pitches and follows the golden band as it trends west with good belay ledges. It has easy route finding.

To descend, traverse west and cross the Goat Piss gully and pick a couloir to go down.


Take CO HWY 9 up Hoosier Pass to County Rd 850. County Rd 850 takes you along the south side of Quandary Peak and up to Blue Lakes. Park at the lower lake parking lot (NOT AT THE DAM), and the Golden Goat Buttress is just a short hike above the paking area on Quandary Peak.


Standard rack, on the light side.
