Ascent Trip Report

Linked up with the Calico Basin Peaks, started at White Dome Parking lot, hiked Calico Basin trail until I found a convenient place to turn and head towards Turtlehead Junior. It was a bit exposed and at times 4th class. Went to Calico Peak next, took 45 minutes, didn't have to meet up with the main trail. You can just go straight there. Lastly, I bagged the West Peak. Came back on the Calico Basin Trail.

The link up entailed a lot of scrambling throughout, but it was a blast of a day.
