Afternoon Nap, Shuteye Ridge
Friday May 31, 2013 8:49pm
I just went up last weekend and did this long easy route.
Had a blast. A good way to dust off the cobwebs and get back into the summer groove. I'll let the photos speak. Summer is here!

Tom,

This is a great route! I've done it numerous times in the last few years and it is my "go to" route for taking new climbers on their first multi pitch. The climbing is super straightforward, the belays are comfortable and you gain a lot of elevation in a short time. The best part is topping out with newbies that have never been to shuteye and watching their jaw drop when they see the view of the Minarets from the top.

Very, very cool...

I've only been to Shuteye once, but this area is accessed by a very different road than High Eagle Dome etc.?

Nice Tom. When are you coming back? Supernova needs to see a repeat, if nothing else just so we can downgrade it, so let's go. Nice topo, too.

Yes, this can be accessed from either the south (best) or east.

Cool stuff. I've done a route on that massive face with a Shuteye regular. I think we did a new variation to the last two pitches or so of said route.

Forgot the name of the route we did. Maybe he'll chime in. You know who you are!!!

hey there say, slater...

thanks for the neat trip report... i saw this was a 'bump' (not sure if i saw it, back then, dial up is not posting the past comments, for some reason it is loading slower...

i saw another trip report, that i think was from you, as well... will see that later, ... hope i have faster computer service soon...

have a few more trip reports that i wanted to see...

:)


wow, years, back, when i first logged on here, seemed the dial up worked better, :O
than it does now, :(

my favorite part was at the end when you guys were bushwacking.

haha, yeah the bushwackin' got a lil' Type II. We clearly missed a cairn somewhere.

So much amazing rock out there. Place is beautiful.
