Ascent of Scapegoat Mountain in 2017
|Ascent Type:||Unsuccessful - Turned Back|
| Elevation:||8000 ft / 2438 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDay 1 went up Steamboat Peak, and continued on Lost Cave Trail, then over UN 8133 and into upper Cave Creek Basin. Camped at highest available water, around 7400'. Next day planned to do Scapegoat via SE ridge, really steep looking but Caffrey guidebook claims there is a route through the cliffs. Never got to try it, high winds over the divide all night and next morning. Should have packed more food, could have waited an extra day. Anyways, day 2 packed all the way out to Elk Creek TH. Probably try a different route when I go back.
