Trip Report
The California Challengs (89% OT)
Wednesday April 25, 2018 9:17pm
For my buddy's birthday he wanted to do something we've both thought about for a long time: starting in the snow and ending in the sea with as much as we can squeeze in between. We've always called it the "California Challenge" so the name stuck and my cousin wanted to come along since he likes making videos.

There's some climbing on a photogenic route at our local Tollhouse Rock outside of Fresno, hence the 11% of the video that's on topic, but I haven't posted a TR in a while so at least it's something!?

Anyway, here's a very short video of a very loooong day

Excellent! Could only be improved with a wingsuit, sans parachute, landing on the beach.

Nice. Back when I lived in LA, we used to do these too. Ski at Baldy and surf on the same day.

Thanks all, it was a fun/stressful day!

What.... no fishing??

We had a completely different route and day planned but the snow situation made us change it up last minute so we had to leave a few things out (whitewater kayaking, fishing, cliff jumping, skate park, etc...). Next time!

Excellent! Could only be improved with a wingsuit, sans parachute, landing on the beach.
The only two things my wife won't let me do: base jumping and cave scuba diving. Well, and that time where she didn't let me go spear fishing at night in an area with tiger sharks. What a buzzkill! ;)

Thought for sure the last few seconds of the video would be base jumping. Lol!
