Calico II / Red Cap Loop - 2/23/10

Fifteen of us began at Calico II and headed to Sandstone Quarry.

From there we scrambled up Red Cap.

The tank found behind the approach was frozen over and the ice did not reflect well!

The sundial was peeking over the surface of the larger tank to the right.

We visited all the tanks which were full to the brim with water.

The sky was blue and the air was nippy but still warm in the sun.

There were a few snow patches and icy spots.

Climbing over the Calico Peak (seen above), we reached the main Calico Tank and scrambled straight down to the Calico II parking lot. There were many emergency vehicles to greet us as there was a rock climber who fell about 15 feet on his/her climb in the area. Las Vegas' finest were on their way.
