44m. A combination of good pitches makes for a popular outing. Also known, for obvious reasons as The Spiral Route.
1) 4+, 24m. Start as for the 1910 Ruta but keep right up a flake then follow the groove to the notch and a good stance.
2) 5+, 20m. The diagonal crack spitting the front face of The Goat is The West Wall Finish. The start is the crux, then continue to the notch and a possible stance at a fat old peg. Traverse the slab leftwards to gain the western arete and finish up this to the top of the Big Horn. Cross the gap to belay on the Little Horn.
NOTE: The rockfall from the Little Horn may have damaged the start of this pitch making it even harder than it used to be.

Makes a nice combination with Forsida. Up the Baksida - jump, abseil down and run up the Forsida and down. Nice day out with the greatest attraction being the jump!

max 1 Star. Everything else here is better.
