Note: This is my first "scrambling" hike back since my injury, so the pace will be moderate.

Hike: We will start the hike on a trail in Calico Basin. We will enter in to Gateway Canyon and cross over to the start of Gray Cap. We will then head off and scramble up sections of class 2 and class 3 climbs to the top of Gray Cap doing the Twin Tanks route.

Not sure of which way we will descend, but there are many options.
