"Rob was celebrating his second time completing the Las Vegas 52 Peak Challenge with Hiking Las Vegas' 52 Peak Club. There were about 30 people total hiking up to Turtlehead Jr via different routes to celebrate with him. We had a small group join us on the easy route from Sandstone Quarry, since we were all beat from yesterday's epic 14 hour ordeal. We enjoyed a nice, long break with everyone and participated in the mannequin themed photo op at the top before heading back down the way we came." - Kevin, Feb 11, 2018
"St Valentines Day Quad Massacre. 4 peaks, 10 miles, 4,000' in 6hrs. We traversed Goatbed Ridge (south to north) bagging Goat Bed Peak, Gray Cap and then Turtlehead Peak. We bagged Red Cap on the way back just to solidify the pain. Great Day. Super workout." - paula.raimondi, Feb 14, 2017
"Good hike after all the snow has made it tough to hike Red Rock. My old neighborhood friend Billy had recently joined and got on this hike with me. Good to catch up,after many years." - acekelly, Feb 7, 2017
"Harlan took me on a 5 peak Route that was absolutely thrilling and amazing. 4:15hrs and 5.5 miles of intense scrambling atop colorful sandstone. A Great workout and confidence building activity. We Left Kraft Mtn parking lot and started with Red Note Peak, then Calico Tank So., Calico Tank No., Red Cap then a complete traverse of the rugged limestone New Peak Mtn and ridge. We finished down Hell Hill. Amazing experience. It was very Fun playing on the rocks like a kid." - paula.raimondi, Nov 3, 2016
"Harlan took me to this Peak for my time. We scrambled up Ash Canyon from Calico Basin, up a north Gully to the Peak, then Looped around the West side of the Peak back to Gateway canyon then finished down Hell Hill. Killer Views. Harlan set up safety webbing for me on a few spots near the summit where I didn't feel safe. " - paula.raimondi, Jan 21, 2016
