Reilly, that image is from the Western Desert of Egypt.


Van Oosten talks about his trip there and to the White Desert also, here:

Gotta throw a vote for Monte Paterno in the Dolomites. Pretty ugly. The Lions Head formation in Eagle is vertical dirt maintaining a disquise. I'll load up a few shots of the craptasm that is the Rotwand.

OH SCHIST!

My subconscious-mind had made me avoid looking at this thread until tonight.

and then I did.

Please appreciate that I am in recovery from being:

A CHOSS-ADDICT!

This is all very difficult for me.

Thank you for your great photos & stories.

SCHIST!

I'm going to have nightmares again, tonight!

It's been many sleepless nights, since that trip to the Hayes Range in Alaska in 1976.

The "belayer slayer" pitch on Der Dihedral FA - a variation on Dragontail Peak in the North Cascades (Leavenworth area)...I was the belayer, Mike is the delicate leader. The loose tooth is below him.

In the late 80s I was scoping out potential south of dreamers (pocketopia etc) on Sherwin Plateau. I found a new grotto down there, and got half way up this nice line when the hold comes off and hits me in the face. I was kinda worried about how much it was gonna bleed, but safely rode my bike back home to Sunny Slopes.

Fritz's Sawtooth photo definitely gets the krispy cream.

Holy crap.. that thing looks like a giant house of cards built out of stone guillotines ready to collapse the minute the wind changes direction.

Chosstopia indeed ...

Froodish paged me earlier in this thread.
Plaidman, paging Plaidman, please report to the choss room!

I deem that this Choss thread must be commented on as I am an official choss monster of the highest degree.

Locally we have a wall we call the Shite Wall. It is choss that we are compelled to keep secret so that no one steals this mountain of choss from us.

I have met others of us that really find choss quit challenging and enjoy it after the fact.
