Comments: For anyone doing the Resolution Arete link-up I added some beta pics on the Mt Wilson page for the Oak Creek descent, minimal thrashing and no more than 1 rap required.

Comments: Adding photos to supplement notmyname's Oak Creek descent description. We did this today and it was fairly straight forward if you can see the landmarks (would be "interesting" in the dark).

Recap: If you head in the general direction of the junction between Rainbow Mountain and the limestone, more specifically aiming for the top of the wide brushy gully (far right side of photo, marked with a light green dot) with some triangular dark red rocks behind it, you'll end up at the right place to ... more >>

Comments: Finally got around to doing this route, fun and highly varied. Thanks again to K for the retrobolt. There are cairns mostly marking the descent as of this weekend.

Comments: I don't remember that Jascha's jacket got shredded on the route. I wish Patagonia hadn't swapped out the fabric on the old Fitz Roy (I think that's the model). It was almost indestructable as a climbing jacket.

Comments: From a historical perspective it's an interesting route. The climbing, rock quality, and views, however, are better on the E Buttress.

Comments: Sibylle, I tend to agree that the 5.4 rating for this route is a sandbag.

Comments: Aside from the last 2 pitches, the route is more of a hike plus a few boulder problems. The setting and varied topology help offset the lack of sustained climbing.

Comments: Thanks, Taylor. It seems to be somewhat popular in the peak bagging circles based on the number of TRs.

Comments: Thanks, J. I can't agree with you more on what an amazing place it is. I feel like I have only scratched the surface after 15+ years of climbing there.

Comments: The most efficient way to get off of the Goose without a rope is to downclimb to the west from the notch between the N and S summits (Sierra class 4). From here, you can drop down the talus past the Fiddlehead to pick up the Fern Canyon trail. This avoids to bushwhacking/scrambling nonsense you would encounter on the north or east sides.
