Corner Route lies on the right-most face of Goat Rock. Climb the obvious clean face to easier ground underneath a small right facing corner. Climb the corner to the top. A very nice variation is instead of climbing the corner, climb the arete just left of the corner all the way to the top. Descend by scrambling down the short face on the back. Note that on the intro page to Goat Rock, the photo shows clearly this entire route.


This route does not have any bolts and there are only one or two trad placements on the entire route. This is normally toproped as the trad gear makes for basically a solo. There are no anchors on the top but you can lasso the large rounded block with your rope or very long slings.

This climb has a few fun moves and both the arête and dihedral fish are consistent with the rating. Also a nice sunning climb for a cool January day.

I agree, some really fun moves on the slabby lower portion. Was nice and sunny on a cool day late in December. The toprope is an easy set-up to sling the giant knob, just be careful lowering down over all the ledges.

If you are going to do this route you are probably going to have to deal with the tree branches that hang close to the rock. Still a good route for beginners.

This route was the most scared I've ever been soloing something... Of course, I made the mistake of free soloing it without having ever done the route before. The crux is a bit tricky for the rating.
