Getting There 

Take CO Hwy 9 up Hoosier Pass to County RD 850 up to the lower Blue Lake. In the early season, you can park at a pullout where the road forks, the left fork goes towards a private cabin (do not enter or block) and the right fork goes to upper Blue Lake dam. The Golden Goat Buttress is directly above the fork in the road.

Noxious Fumes M2-3 Steep Snow R  CO : CO Ice & Mixed : ... : McCullough Gulch
This route could have some potential ice and mixed climbing in it. I climbed and skied this route in the huge snowfall/windy winter of '10/'11. There were only two pitches of mixed climbing, and the rest was steep snow. This climbs a lot like Dreamweaver in RMNP....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
