I did the right side in the 80's with T. Burke. The first attempt we got rained off after about 4-5 pitches. Usual July thunder storms. Had to actually "sprint" for the anchors before there was too much water. I got off route and had to take a 40 foot slider because I couldn't reverse the moves. Got blisters on my palms from the slide :-)
I've done the right side dozens and dozens of times.
I would actually hate to on-site that fifth pitch again with only old stacked piton in one place for Pro, but those days, barring amnesia, are over.
Even after dozens of ascents, I actually fell on the fifth pitch once. It was around dawn and we are in a hurry to climb all the way to the rim vehicle like a hitchhiker. I stepped too far to the right and slipped on some gritty ball bearings on the rock, slid about 25 feet.
People should be doing the left side too. The amazing down-traverse flake before the roof is gone making the climb maybe harder and less interesting up to that point since the route changed but the roof pitch is just incredible---one of the most exciting pitches I have ever done and it is only 5.9; really unusual for the Apron too. I did it back in 1965 when I was in high school. And the right side in 1971 with Mark Feldman (?) from Oregon/PacNorWest. I would stress too that the right side is really pretty!
I did Goodrich Pinnacle, Right with a guy named Tony Jewell in 1975. Remember it was a pretty neat route. I squeaked off on a long 5.9 friction pitch up there and slid about ten feet or so. Remember it was pretty led out in places but I don't remember it as being terribly scary. We continued to Oasis and rapped to Monday Morning Slab from there. It was a neat day.
I had some great days on Apron: Four routes on the Grack (Marginal, Center, left Side, and Right side) and then Patio Pinnacle, Regular Route. I never got around to Angel's Approach on Lucifer's Ledge, but only bailed while getting rained on after doing Point Beyond. I love that slab climbing!
I did Goodrich right side in about '78 and then up to the Oasis.
I don't remember any spooky 5.9 slab, just solid climbing all the way. I thought the hardest section was the grass filled cracks in the dihedrals above the top of Goodrich. That was spooky! Very little pro, marginal at best. A beautiful climb.
Then the Oasis. What a magical place. About 11 rapps (thanks for the chains Tom Rohrer) down from the west end of the Oasis past Coonyard. Last 4 or 5 done very carefully in the dark with a plastic flashlight in my teeth. A very memorable climb in beautiful surroundings.
