Ascent Trip Report

Added a 4th Class wall to right of exposed traverse. Climbing was otherwise easy. Hit my head on an overhung cliff on climb near the summit, and felt woozy and not up to downclimbing the twin tanks route I had ascended. Bailed off of the North side of Grey Cap, into Brownstone Canyon (just one easy 3rd Class downclimb), and took the long wash hike back to Calico Basin.
