Turtlehead Peak, 6323′, Alternative Route

October 13 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 pm UTC-7

Please note, our articles may contain referral or affiliate links.

We’ll seek out alternates to the fairly unpleasant trail by ascending in the dominant west gully to the summit ridge, then staying on the ridgeline to the top. On descent, we’ll drop into an entirely different drainage ending up in a neat slot canyon. Lot’s of Class 2 and 3 scrambling with modest exposure.

Stats: about 2000′ of gain, 5 3/4 miles roundtrip, 4-5 hours. Pace moderate.

Must have good scrambling skills.

Helmets strongly advisable due to loose, steep terrain.

No guests, pets, children.

Limit: 10. Everyone goes on the waitlist pending leader approval.

We’ll observe current Covid-19 policies. Have a mask handy in case needed.
