BVB, I'm digging what yer laying down, just saying if the drive to the valley was as bad, it would be empty. Plus the fire f*#ked up some killer camping and fried the boulders. Terrible place. Stay away.

I stashed some zoom zooms at the horn back in 2000? Thought I'd be back... but then it burned, so no point really.

If more people knew the whole story, that fire would go down in history as the most profound tragedy in American climbing since Hetch Hetchy.

Every single time I went back to Font it just seemed to get chossier and chossier and chossier. What a pile. I'd way rather go to Stony.

BITD it never remotely crossed my mind that anyone would climb that crap
on the Seward Hwy. Way way BITD we were heading for Whitney (from Seattle)
and saw these cliffs outside Bend. We pulled over for a few minutes.

"What a sh!t pile. Let's go."

Mission Gorge and Valley of the Moon, San Diego's best chosspiles.

Mission Gorge is so rubbled out it's funny just to look at, and VotM looks OK til you touch it.

MG actually has really solid fine grained rock, problem is it's slicker than a baby's butt most everywhere. There's a route there named Spankin' the Beachball

One thing good about, Choss, it keeps the crowds away.
