This is part of the Rock review. I will be camping Friday and Saturday night.

Jeff will lead a separate rope team.

You must know how to provide a safe lead belay on single or double ropes and practiced cleaning trad protection. No multi-pitch experience necessary and you are not expected to lead, but if you feel up for it then great!

We will climb one (or two) of the many traditional multi-pitch routes on Kid goat. Options are Twilight(5.7), Highlight(5.9), Twilight Zone(5.7), Keelhaul Wall(5.6) or Slingsby's Overhang(5.7). Choice of route will depend on the abilities of our team and other climbers on the cliff. We'll plan to be early to have first choice.

We will travel up and over the climb and making a walk-off towards climbers right down a drainage with a short 4th class step. This means we will carry everything with us up the climb. Choose wisely with what you bring. If time and fitness allow, we will attempt a second route up.

Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, harness, belay device and locking carabiner, Personal prussik, cordalette, anchor package, light approach/hiking shoes, climbing pack, layers as needed for the weather, food, water.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Sense of humour and adventure

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   We will meet in the parking lot.

From TC highway, Exit at Seebee 1x. Travel south and turn West on 1A at "T" intersection. Parking lot is directly south across from entrance to Class III landfill.


I will be staying in the group campground Friday and Saturday night. We will meet at the Kid Goat parking lot.
