Default route to Goat ridge

Yes, you are right it is a little more circuitous but when we explored last year there was still snow present so we didn't venture up the steeper route. Ive tried to attach screen shot of the route - hopefully it works. Sorry I'm new to this site.
The route is fun, not much bush and some neat scrambling on the slabs. We modified a little of the alder near the gully to make travel easier.

The route traverses around the south side of Goat ridge and then drops briefly into a rocky basin and crosses a gully. That section is a little rough. It then ascends along forested ledges and eventually heads up rock slabs to the crest of the ridge. The route has some class 3 in the rocky section but if you pick your way it is not very exposed. A few friends and I put it up earlier this year. It would be great to see it get some use, and it makes for a nice loop along logging roads back to the Seatosky gondola.
This is pure gold. Thank you!

I've heard the trials riders pushed a route up to Goat Ridge following roughly the same line but never investigated. Scrambling the ridge crest itself is quite fun but a mellower option would be good.
