DescriptionMt. Goode is totally rad and if you are looking for some steep granite cracks this variation is bitching! Peter and I added three new pitches to the left of the North Buttress on a steep and obviously featured wall. The rock is awesome, get on it!
P1. Same as the North Buttress route.
P2. Easy and short 5.8 pitch to large ledge bellow the steep wall. Belay on solid cams.
P3. Interesting 5.11 climbing with thin gear and face climbing. Belay on a small ledge with solid cams and one fixed pin.
P4. The money pitch! Amazing fingers/hands splitter through a small roof (5.11+). Belay on a big ledge with solid cams.
From this point follow the North Buttress to the summit.
