Goodrich to the Oasis Trip Report 6/20/09
A couple of weeks ago we did Goodrich Pinnacle Right and looking up were thinking wouldn’t it be fun to just keep going. So Saturday we did. We used the Galactic Hitchiker topo off of Karl’s site.
The route is more or less the left line on this pic.
Here’s the link to the TR of the lower pitches.
Here’s a couple of more pics from Goodrich Right.

P6, doesn’t really show the route, I just like this pic.
The two pitches above the Pinnacle are really cool. No harder than what you’ve already done and with a bolt usually not to far below on the cruxes.
Here’s a pic of P10.
The next two pitches run together but I never found the three pins that were supposed to make up the P12 anchor, just one pin and a good crack. I think we went the wrong way on the next pitch. Here’s the way we went up and right across green and scrappy terrain.
I think we should have gone left. Here’s a pic looking around the left side of the overhang.
The next pitch has two ways to go. I went up to look at the 10b/9+ and decided the crux was too far above the pro. The other way is 5.6
We ran together the next two pitches. Kind of green, kind of fun.
Here’s the anchor where we sat. Sort of typical for the apron I think.
Here’s looking up toward the Oasis.
Here’s another pic of the Oasis once we climbed up there.
There are lots of flowers blooming up there right now.
We wandered around on the ledges for a while looking for the descent route.
Here is a pic from way up on the descent.
Another great day! See y’all.
