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.

Tommy Knocker Steep Snow  CO : CO Ice & Mixed : ... : McCullough Gulch
This is a great snow climb and a excellent ski descent, perhaps the moderate classic of the peak at about a 45*-50* at the crux! This couloir is located on the east face that makes up the Inwood ArÍte, from the top you can easily traverse 2nd class talus/snow into the upper half of the Quandary Couloir to gain the summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
