Trip ReportFresno - Where Dreams Die (Shuteye Ridge TR)
My nephew Coby and I left the Central Coast at 6pm Friday Oct. 18th, gunning for REI and then Shuteye Ridge to camp out and climb.
The truck busted down at 8pm somewhere east of Lemore on Hwy 41.
A quick call to AAA.
Sat in a field and drank beer under a full moon.
A tow truck sent from Selma. Thanks Brian!

It wasn't the trip we planned, and we did far less climbing than originally planned, but all things considered, it was a pretty memorable trip!
When life gives you lemons, go climbing.
Breakfast on the curb...
Afternoon Nap 5.7, pitch one
pitch four... about 800' up the dome.
Bomber pro... yer gonna die!
Field of dreams...
No wasps... probably 'cause Justin and Jeremy weren't there to piss them off.
