Kraft, New Peak, Turtlehead, Greycap
From Calico Basin along after having climbed Gateway & Damsel
Most recently from Kraft Mtn parking lot, up and over into a wash, then a new route through the sandstone. Down the ridge and left into Brownstone Basin, and back around.
Hiked this in scattered showers from Calico Basin - had to take shelter in a cave at one point as the rain was coming down so hard the was a significant volume of water flowing down the gully I was hiking up.
A great route up to this peak is via Brownstone Canyon, from Calico Basin, taking in a couple of big tinajas en route. I saw a large golden eagle on the ridge, as well as several bighorn sheep and a lone bobcat.
Started via Sandstone Quarry lot. The three pour overs along the route were fun to negotiate, but the scrambling on the descent was not kind to my knees. Awesome slot canyon along the way.
Again on 11/15/14 as part of a loop of Red Cap, Grey Cap, and Turtlehead. The descent from Grey Cap down into Brownstone Basin was super fun.
Again on 2/25/17, via the South face, after going up and over Kraft. Descended into Brownstone, went back through to Gateway and down Hell Hill. GPS tracks
