Ascent Trip Report

What a glorious trip! My friend Jillian and I took three leisurely days ascending Goat, heading in to our camp below Moonshine Lake Friday evening, summitting and returning to camp Saturday, and walking out Sunday morning. We had great weather the first two days, and really appreciated the scenic beauty of the mountains. The summit day had some challenging routefinding and scrambling, but nothing overly intense. A real outstanding trip in all ways. Even though it is a decent bit longer than the southern approach, I really recommend the Lake Michael route on Goat.
