Elevation Data

The elevation listed on this page for Goat Mountain (12,212 feet) has been obtained from the current NGS Datasheet, and is more accurate than the 12,207 feet listed on the 1992 The Sphinx quad. More information on benchmarks and their elevations is available here.

Re: Beautiful page, gorgeous area

Wow thanks Guido! If this encourages folks to visit that's probably the best compliment I could get. It's definitely a wonderful area. Thanks for the comment.

Enjoyed your page

Lot's of good info on a rather underrated (IMHO) peak. Maybe it's time to do another repeat climb. (Better get on the treadmill!)

Re: Enjoyed your page

Thanks boyblue! Entirely agree it is underrated. I was quite pleased on the trip how scenic much of the route was, and the views from the summit are super.

Historical View

I believe that it is from this summit that the Whitney Survey Team named many of the key mountains in the area: Brewer, King & Gardiner, and the three Palisades, North, Middle, and South. It is one of the earliest peaks climbed by Brewer, Hoffman, King, & Gardiner in the Sierra, and from the summit these six mountains have prominence. All are visible in this beautiful panoramic photograph. When I was atop Goat Mountain it was late in the summer, so there was a lot less snow in the view. I recommend this summit to those who want a good view without any technical climbing beyond the rocky slope on the final ascent, but the climb, mostly by trail, is over 7,200 of steady elevation gain, a bit much for a day hike. I did come down from Goat Mountain in one day, though, after summitting in the morning.
