JLuthanenTrue West  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2014


First timer up Goat - started later than I would've wanted which resulted in some hot / humid hiking through 4ft tall overgrowth lower in the forested switchbacks(not cool!). Ice axe was unnecessary insurance for the top as the snow bridge was soft enough to punch steps easy. Fun scramble up

Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013


Parked at the Tomyhoi TH and booted up the gully leading from Swamp Creek. A very direct and scenic route to the East Summit. Great fun!

relicAwful? Yer kidding, right?   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 1988


Date is a guess. Climbed the steep north face on late season frozen snow, up the more western snow chute… higher I got the harder the snow became, til it was too late to turn around… scared the heck outta myself.

one of my least favorite hikes ever. It was recommended to me. Ugly forest with no views until the end and those not worth the suffering of switchbacks for hours. The area offers so many options. Do not fall for this one.

To make the hike longer start in north van and access via the BCMC, The Cut, or the Grind. Goat is an easy hike to the top, even in winter. Plenty of great views on a clear day with minimal climbing effort.

done this trip many times during the summer and once during twice 3 times during the winter on snow shoes,stay on the ridge till you reach the last few hundred feet for saftey in winter conditions.I love it better in winter but expect 2 full days of hard climbing through deep powder on snow shoes to the summit it is very a nice in winter snow shoe trip.

Climbed West Goat, camped near saddle and climbed to the true summit the following morning. Slippery, wet heather!

Great hike, but didn't make it all the way due to low lying clouds and cold temperatures for September. Will try again next time. Great elevation gain, a good training hike in late season when the weather starts to turn and the higher peaks are less accessible.

geoseanWest Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2008


This is a great climb; the first time I didn’t quite make the real summit (there is a false summit just a few feet shorter about 100 ft SE with a, sometimes steep, snow bank between). Essentially no snow but for the last little perennial bank.

Date Climbed: May 31, 2007


A great snow climb! Greg and I made our own route to the West summit in perfect conditions. Here is a 360 degree panorama from the summit. He ate some of that pink "watermelon" snow that shows up in the spring and summer. I think it's some kind of algae bloom. Anyhow, he ended up getting sick and puking all over as we were driving home.
