Fresno Dome / Central Camp Adventures

Scott Rippee @ 11:32 pm September 4th, 2007

I made it up to the mountains with some friends last weekend. We stayed at my grandfather’s cabin in Central Camp (a couple thousand feet above Bass Lake) and got some rock climbing in at Fresno Dome.

My friend let me cruse around on his beautiful quad. I naturally found the largest puddle I could and blasted through it.

We didn’t make it to the top. Short on daylight and out of practice. We had to descend to the bottom and hike back out the way we came. Making it to the top has the added bonus of getting an easier hike back.

Overall very relaxing and a wonderful break.
