Eric The Goat runs up the pegmatite slab off the second terrace and just about gets you to the top of Goat Rock. The best approach is to do one of the lower pitches. It has solid stone, is real juggy, and is not very difficult until the very last move - where the hands get a bit out of sequence. ETG is a tad overbolted. It was drilled from hooks on solo-lead, and I still don't have the rig down pat.


Take a dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor.

Pleasant but mostly easy. You can move left at the crux either high or low. There are two bolts very close together, ~1 foot apart, at the crux for some reason. I see from the description that the reason is this was bolted on the lead from hooks.
