Trip: Goat Wall - Prime Rib (of goat)


Date: 4/15/2007


Trip Report:

Started at 9 and topped out at 3:30. The route was clear and pretty clean. One snow bank on pitch 8 required bypassing the first bolt with a long unprotected but easy traverse. Rock was nice and dry. Wound up as a team of three but swapping leads was still pretty efficient and everyone led their share. A few really good pitches with some nice exposure and a bunch of ok ones. A good route to start off the season. No rockfall problems. Got real lucky with the weather. The route was in the shade till about pitch 6 or so but the temp was just high enough to stay warm and when the sun finally hit the rock....great stuff. Worth the trip from Spokane.


Gear Notes:

Single rope (we took 2 [team of 3]). 14 Draws.


Approach Notes:

The approach described on the topo is accurate. Staying in the talus to the right of the path/scree seemed to work best when slogging up the talus field. Dry - no snow on the trail.

I know you've been waiting, which is why we headed over there before the grand opening :) Can't say specifically about that route but there was a large patch of of snow to the east of our route that was still on the wall. I contacted the N. Cascade guides for current beta and they provided pretty accurate info on conditions.
