Description

East above one of the largest "tanks" (depression that collects rain-water - "tinaja") in the Calicos.

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

. . . (more info see on SummitPost).

Some possible climbing routes:
  • WSW face - from near the tank - (see variation on SummitPost.org)
. . . (? perhaps leave the CT trail around (N36.1613 W115.4386) W of the big tinaja, say 250 ft before below the Pass, then around the NW + N sides of the tinaja, up roughly ENE then NE to the summit ?)

  • SSW face - from near Calico / Tank Pass.
  • traverse from Red Cap from NW - (more difficult and trickier than it looks).

Getting There

- - > "tank" on the map.

Quickest way is from Sandstone Quarry using the Calico Tanks trail for approach, then scrambing to the summit from the southwest or west.
