Ascent Trip ReportAn awesome day doing a loop, starting with the Calico Tanks Trail to the Kraft mountain trail and heading north/northeast cross-country to the saddle between Graycap and Turtlehead. This section of the route was spectacular with so many different rock textures and colors (limestone and sandstone)! We scrambled up Greycap Peak first, returned to the saddle, and then hiked up (class 2) the northeast side of Turtlehead Mountain and returning to the car via the regular Turtlehead trail.
C2C = ~8 hours. ~9:00 am-5:00 pm - We spent about 30 minutes on the summit of Graycap and 2 hours on the summit Turtlehead. It took us only an hour to traverse between the two summits (quicker than we thought it would take).
