Via the South Cliff Band Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2014
I had an unexpected day off from work, so I started at the Calico Basin TH, took the wash around between Kraft and Graycap, the ascended to the saddle between Turtle and Graycap and dropped down into Brownstone Basin, taking a moment to admire the pictographs found there. Across the basin I spotted a "weakness" in the cliff band and headed up there to exposed class 3 rock and loose chutes to make the summit. Descending I took the north trending ridge down to an easy drainage out into Brownstone again, and headed back.
First attempt at La Madre from my front door was aborted and I climbed the west ridge to the north summit instead
