This is a great conditioner hike for higher / more challenging peaks. A lot of ups and downs, plenty of scrambling, steep tugs up false summits... Going it solo in snow, breaking my own trail - I was good and tired by the end of the outting!
I climb Goat several times a year. Always a good day. Everything from quiet scenic trails to some class 3/4 scrambling. My office is on the east side of Goat, so every day I look at it out my window. I love bringing friends up there to show them the Goat...it is so close yet no one knows about it.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
