Description

East facing crag above woodbury with great views of mountains, especially Mt Loki across the lake. Mostly sports routes up to 3 pitches in length

Access issues

The access road is a rough logging road, it can be done, but is slow going if you have low clearance.

Approach

From Nelson take Hwy 31 towards Kaslo, about 2km north of Woodbury Resort take the access road on the West side of the road (49.80850, -116.90314), signs for Kokannee Park. Follow this winding dirt road up for about 5km, stay right at 1.3km up the road (49.79846, -116.90187), right at 2km (49.79831, -116.90581), then left at 3km (:parking;, 49.80300, -116.90936) and 4km (49.80832, -116.91399). Then park at the grassy clearing just past the rock cairns (49.80123, -116.91916).

Take the climbers trail at the cairns up to the crag, about 15 minutes, 0.5km. This will lead you to Goat Head Wall.

This area is used for high-angle rope rescue training, this is why there are multiple extra anchors at the top of the wall.
