First day  Sucess!

Took my family hiking here first day of the year because my 14-year old wants to start rock-climbing and we wanted to check it out. Cool! Will have to try the steep side once we get gear and training.

Scrambled to the top of the rock from Ridge Trail(?) to have lunch. Great views!

Lots of People  Sucess!

Had a great day hiking around and climbing the rock. There was way too many people out there though.

crowded  Sucess!

cool rock for rock climbing but if you go on a weekend get there early because goat rock can get a little crowded, i usually opt to rock climb on other rocks in the surrounding area.

Love the rock.  Sucess!

Did a couple of 5.7 and 5.8 routes. Wondering where the goat is.

climbed this more times than I can count  Sucess!

Goat Rock was the second rock I climbed in the park and always a favorite (when it lacks crowds that is). I've been fortunate enough to sit atop this rock without a single person around many times. The views, especially at sunset are amazing. love the "stoner cave" at the top for hanging out in, making a pot of ramen, etc. I solo swiss chese every time im in the park and usually set up a rope for the 5.8 arete or the roof routes when i get to the top

Rappelling  Sucess!

This is where I learned to rappel as a kid.

Did it!  Sucess!

Hiked this one a couple of times, and is my only roped rock climbing ascent (thanks to some rock climbing buddies).

Hike and short scramble to (near) the top  Sucess!

I didn't actually climb the rock, but instead hiked to the top from the south east. From there, I did a short scramble to near the top. The views towards Big Basin and Ben Lomond are impressive.

Spent the day toproping here today. Much fun.

Swiss Cheese, Arete  Sucess!

We've climbed at Goat Rock many times. I like the arete (5.8?) to the right of Swiss Cheese, in particular. I've never been able to pull the Great Roof. Sigh...

the pony party  Sucess!

As a part of my Rapid Fitness Programme (RFP) I decided to summit, climb, peakbag, get to the top of, stand atop, climb up to, hike to the top of, run to the top of, walk to the top of, scramble to the top of, bag, crawl to the top of, and summit rapidly, this great rock, mountain, jut in the side of a hill, jut in the side of a mountain, hill, summit, which some great few (or many) choose to call Goat (or Gort) Rock (or Roak).
