The middle of three routes punching up through the upper sector headwall of Goat Rock, Sacrificial Goat picks a very clean line through an equally tricky, and steep, headwall. No more beta. Mark sussed out an improbable sequence with terrific kinesthetic movement. Expect moderate climbing to a hand jam rest followed by continuous 5.12 climbing to the anchors. The blood you see will be my own.


Eleven draws and a rope.

Ran this again with Pat on the weekend of 8/17 - 8/18. Overall this ticks in as quite a nice line, but starting the headwall may have a very reachy solution. Beta targets a left hand gaston that can be reached from good feet if one is at least six feet tall. A shorter person will need some major lock off power in order to hike the right foot and get a hand on the gaston. A wide open right hand could ease the move to the gaston, but again, its a wicked power problem unless you are over six feet tall. Even after snagging the gaston, its still 5.12 to finish. Despite the reachy crux, the route still has a very cool sequence.
