Hi All,

I'm headed to Fresno on a business trip in a couple of weeks and will be landing about 3:30 in the afternoon.
Is there anything close by to check out climbing wise that can be done before it gets too dark, or should I just stick to a gym?
And if I'm staying close to the airport, are there any good gyms nearby?

Thanks for your help,

Johnny

Metal Mark is a great gym.

I think if you're landing at 3:30 you might be SOL to climb outside. There are a few local crags but they are roughly 30-45 minutes away and involve a 10-15 minute approach...by the time you got your bags, got your car, and made it to the start of any route it'd probably be dark.

If you have a good sense of adventure, it is possible to climb the Tollhouse Traverse by headlamp.

Hey, thanks guys.

That's what I was afraid of. I might have to see if I can duck out of a meeting early in the following days to see what's out there, even if its just for a drive.

Thanks again,

Johnny
