Ascent Trip Report

Started at Asutsi trailhead off of 221. After crossing under the parkway took a left on the Tanawha Trail until reaching Daniel Boone scout trail. Climbed that until the top. Took us an hour and a half to get to the top of Calloway and we continued on past Attic Window Peak, down the chute. Past this the dog could not make it any farther so we turned around. My second Time on Calloway Peak, and we actually peaked it twice on this trip. Rain poured the whole way down and we had to go much slower thanks to slippery rocks. Took us 5 hours in total.
