climbed w/ Whitney Lyman & Lauren Eble - always a nice climb, and ~8" of snow at the peak this time made for some good pictures. Need to remind people to bring gloves for this hike - sharp, loose rocks!

Red Rocks are awesome! Turtlehead offers great views of them. Summitted with my bro-in-law. It was a beautiful day. Very nice!

While visiting CON EXPO in Las Vegas, my wife and I decided to hike this peak. It was also my first time at Red Rocks. This whole area gave me a reason to visit Las Vegas again.

Did this climb in the morning before work. Very easy but a lot of fun picking your own route to the top as the trail is not very defined.

Training for rim-rim-rim in Grand Canyon. Did TP 5 times non-stop with no sitting in one day to train. Have also done it 3 times in one day. Good little peak- quick elevation gain.

Climbed with my fiance, brother, and sister. There was a lot of "choose your own adventure" on the way up. Virtually no wind at the top and terrific views in all directions. We saw a bighorn sheep on the way down, and had an overall great experience. Total time - 5 hours including 45 mins at the summit.

With Mommy and Daddy. Not yet 9 months old, so Daddy carried me. It was about 50F with rain and wind on the summit, but I didn't cry.

justinjohnsenFirst time at Red Rock  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 10, 2008
Had a morning free before I started a work conference in Vegas, so I went up to Turtlehead along the standard trail from Sandstone Quarry. Awesome scenery for a non-desert native.

Spied an inviting drainage leaving Turtlehead's south slopes into a slot canyon on the northwest side of the Calico Hills. It made for a fun descent and return to the car. The solid rock at the bottom of the gully was far preferable to the slippery stuff on the use trails up.

Did this one on a nice warm day. OUt of shape and that was a painful one, but very worth the summit. In my top 5 favorite summits for sure.

Many times since-- essentially a quickly-accessed training hike.
The routes from Calico Basin on the SE offer much more challenge and solitude:

I hiked this with my 11 year old daughter. We started at 9 a.m. from the Visitor's Center, went through Calico Hills to the Sandstone Quarry and then on to Turtlehead Peak via the standard trail. We hit the summit at 12:30 and were back at the Visitor's Center by 4:00. Perfect weather and surprisingly no crowds to speak of on the mountain. This was my third time on Turtlehead, but it was my daughter's first real mountain.
