High Flying Goats climbs the black slab off the second terrace and just about gains the top of Goat Rock. HFG shares the first four clips with Eric The Goat and then climbs to the right into and out of a narrow dihedral to gain the base of a ragged, diagonaling crack. After passing a little tree, the line fires bee-line to the top. This is fun, clean, solid climbing in an alpine setting.


Fourteen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. The line is 100 ft long, so bring the 60 meter cord or doubles.

Fun moderate route!

Holds are abundant and moves are fun. Turning the corner is the only part of the climb that warrants an 8, but it's worth doing.

Turning the corner seemed a bit dangerous for a 5.8 sport route. The bolt is to the left of the groove you are climbing as you exit right out of the groove. You'd take a bit of a swing and hit the corner if you came off. The rock was a little loose. My partner knocked a big chunk off in the corner that hit the ground near me. Helmets are a good idea at Goat Rock. I knocked a huge rock off scrambling from the anchors at the top of the second tier up to Eric the Goat when my toe hooked under something I couldn't see. The rock stopped just short of the road. A helmet wouldn't have helped in that case.
