Although I'd been up here before, this time we went for a different approach, hitting both Calico Peaks, Red Cap (both summits), New Peak, and some other un-named peak along the way.

Date Climbed: Feb 20, 2012


Spent most of the morning dinking around on Tuna and Chips Wall. Super fun. Discovered that Red Rock ratings are a bit stiffer than at my local crags (Exit 38, Vantage, etc.); adjusted my expectations of myself and had a blast.

Did some sport climbing up in here. Very cool rock with good quality. We climbed in the Black Corridor and Hunter Thompson Dome. Did a few 5.9's and a few 5.10's. Amazing place in the spring time

scrambled around the various canyons and rocks while my parents did the loop drive. under the shadow of an approaching monsoon rain the whole time. cool place, easy to find "wilderness" and solitude 5 minutes away from a slew of tourists

A fun tourist (read: shooting photos) scramble around the Calico Hills. Climbed a gully near the top, but was running out of daylight and left.

Did Calico Tanks as part of a weekend Trip to Vegas. After that visit - we decided that we must return to do more hiking in Red Rocks! Awesome area.

As the guide book describes, it a bit contrived with lousy fixed pro (ground fall potential). I lead this route back in 1998 and remember getting psyched out on it but finishing it anyway. Still felt that way when Deb and I did it. Typically, Red Rocks ratings are soft. But this one I would give a solid 5.9....and fairly sustained on the bottom section (mostly technical).
