With no out of town hikers signing up, we moved the hike to an earlier start... with an Exploratory drift to the south. The route held to the top of the cliff edges, lower than our normal traverse of this area. It was nice! Hit top of Goat South after ascending Goat Middle Falls. From there around and above Cabrito... then along the top of the Quiet Cliffs. Great rock and rock moments. For the most part we enjoyed better footing hiking along game trails... converting to hike trails should be easy? Crossing Gordo Cut we worked around into upper Quiet and on over the Dome Ridge and down into the Dome Cut. I'd forgotten what an exceptional canyon route that cut provides; excellent exit!

I need to schedule a RockHound loop... there is great specimen rock along the entire route. Gotta think of a name for this loop... Goat Cliffs Wrap? GoatDome Loop? ???
