Rock Climbing Photo: Me on Kamakaze 5.10a (Ozone)
Hey MP! I thought for the new year I'd start a thread where we can post up goats for the coming year. Obviously this is a spray thread, to a degree, but I think these kind of things can be fun, and its motivating to see goats gunning for personal bests, be they 5.10 or 5.14 or WI5 or whatever.

All right, so this is mostly because I mis-read the original "goals" thread and for a second thought it really was going to be about goats. But to add some content, here are some amazing goats!

This guy is a little small and hard to spot, but he's topped out a fantastic route! Totally inspiring.

Honnold has his cookies, goats have their grass. I'm sure he's just refueling for his next epic send.
