I beleive climbing a peak from a different route is like climbing a new peak. This Loop is a 10 mi scrambe from Calico Basin instead of the normal BLM trail from Sandstone Quarry parking.
We climb a lot of the local mountains from different routes and I would like to post these alternate routes to keep track of our mountaineering.
