One of five peaks today  Sucess!

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.

Tuna and Chips  Sucess!

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.

Very Nice Climbing  Sucess!

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

fun place to fool around and explore  Sucess!

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

Scramble  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Caliban (5.8+) Date Climbed: 07 Jan 06  Sucess!

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).
