Description

Not the highest peak in the Calico Hills proper, but the most prominent seen from the nearby section of the Red Rock Scenic Loop road.

Top section is white sandstone, and it's the third (or second?) highest peak in Calico Hills "proper".

Its wide summit area has several high points, not easy to determine which one is the highest.

The south "ViewCap" (N36.1585 W115.4380) is a bit lower than other spots in the summit area, but displays prominently to nearby sections of Scenic Loop road. and offers the best view on Calico Peak (perhaps with less work). Nicely reached by the routes Stone Sweet Ridge or Red Slippers or upper West South Ridge or SouthEast Gully.

Getting There

- - > "cal" on the map.

Most quickly reached from the "2nd Pull-Out" (2PO) parking on the Red Rock Scenic Loop road. Perhaps the SouthEast Gully route is the fastest way to the summit area.

Or can be climbed from Sandstone Quarry parking by approaching its northeast side (and the "tank") using the Calico Tanks trail, then climbing the "East-side Ramp" route.

Much more work to get to it from the southeast from the Calico Basin parking areas.
