Itinerary:
Mark Carlson will enthral us with the tales about the new route he and Tyler put up on Goat Buttress! The Fluffy Goat Butt-face is a 600+m face climb on the imposing Goat Buttress. The (possibly?) unrepeated route is a blend of alpine sportaineering and vertical cragging up to 5.11 in difficulty. It is an all-you-can-eat limestone buffet for the average Bow Valley sport climber. Mark Carlson has prepared tales of developing the route ground-up with Tyler Kirkland over a 2 year period. It was a 600+ hour adventure full of harness chafing, haulbag riding, hundreds of meters of fixed rope, kilometers of jugging with heavy bags, dead- ends, big trundles, photo shoots, and hidden treasures.
Required Items to Bring:
Cash for beers and wine.
