Description Suggest change

P1 - 5.5 35m
Easy meandering climbing to the chains.
P2 - 5.6 30m
Interesting corner and crack system leads up to a fun limestone-style finger/hand crack.
P3 - 5.6 40m - crux pitch
Easy slab to easy roof, to easy slab, to easy roof.
P4 - 5.5 35m
More easy slab to easy roof, then walk to the chains.

Rock overall is good quality, and the route is quite fun.
Banff Rock has a detailed PDF available with description and topo of all the climbs on Kid Goat.

This climb has been retro bolted and very little trad gear is needed. It takes a few small cams to BD #1  in the second pitch, otherwise it's protected with fixed gear.

Location Suggest change

Starts under a small cave a few routes climbers left of Grey Wave, and one route right of the tree island. Marked on the rock with "TWZ". Descent is via rappels, doable with 1 60m rope

Protection Suggest change

All belays are bolted. There are a few bolts and pitons here and there on the climb. Other than that a small rack is needed.
