I was hoping to put this little power problem away before listing it here, but even the latest effort still evinced an A0 move out of me. However, since Mark freed it a couple of months ago, its only fair, and about time, to list it here. To the right of Goat Rock proper is a fir tree with a little boulder behind it. This is host to a killer little climb, 30 feet long and protected by four bolts. The crag tips back by 35 degrees leaving you 20 feet from the base in 30 feet of climbing. The rock is solid and the moves relentlessly powerful. Very strenuous face climbing leads to a painful and very strenuous crack for the final ten feet. This is off-fingers jams on a very steep (!) wall. With cool, powerful moves Goats in the Hood can be a great training route.


Four draws and a rope.

Once again, don't bitch about rock if you can't spank the route. Early Dec, plenty warm to work the wank on this sweet little prize. Hard is hard, but that don't make bad.
