Description 

Goofy Spire was first published in Ament and Erickson's 1972 guidebook to climbing around Boulder: "5.10." Goofy Spire is also listed in Ament and McCarty's 1976 and 1985 editions of "High Over Boulder."


Getting There 

Goofy Spire is 0.4 miles west of Boulder, up CO Highway 119. It sits not too high above the highway, across Boulder Creek from the Fourth Elephant Buttress. After leaving town, the prominent, left-facing dihedral on Goofy's narrow east face is the first visible route in Boulder Canyon.

East Face 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  CO : Boulder Canyon : Goofy Spire
Climb a sort of chimney, and continue up the prominent, left-facing dihedral on the narrow east face. I led Jay Mather up this in 1972. It seemed like 5.7 at the time, but that was an old-school rating. I have never heard of anyone climbing this, before or since. Until now, I'm not aware of any publication of this route's existence. I thought it was a good climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
