It's a miracle it got that pointy!! It's really black wood, not ebony though.

An excellent trip report about a big day out in The Pinnacles bagging summits, loaded with wonderful panoramic photographs.
Must click on the independent link provided to see the Full Monty and well worth it in ambience alone.

Outstanding cardboard rock you've been tinkering with Munge Man!
There there Munge ... Why don't you come inside for a little while so we can get you the help you need! Ha ha. Here Kitty Kitty.

East Buttress, Lower Middle Cathedral.
We've had some good discussions about the route; Fissure Beck, Bachar's on-site solo and so forth. The upper third of that route, and bits and pieces of it along the way are pretty darn Chossy. Nonetheless, it's near the top of my list for B grade classics.

CHOSS a game where the only winning move is not to play!

The French like Choss so much they live next to it. Picturesque.

Kastraki Tower Meteora, Greece.
The rock is a conglomerate, so it can vary from Pinnacles-like quality to occasionally rival that of Tuolumne.
Developed under a strict ground-up ethic by Dieter Hasse.

This route was something like five or six pitches. Bigger than it looks in the picture for sure! The first pitch, 5.10 stemming and chimney against walls with nearly the consistency of dirt, but more like frozen dirt, so not quite that bad.

At the 5.10 OW crux, the rock is a bit flakey and littered with pokey crystalline shaped knobs.



Still, one of the more novel climbs of memory!
A bit on the Chossy side and also a powerful line to be sure.

Homan! I'd bleed all over that.
