Another movie just out......of my mind.

Chossist Unchained:

A movie about the blood guts and glory of choss. And the revenge of a Chossist over coming snooty elitist climbers and mountaineers that only climb good rock.

Elitist defined: The belief that certain persons or members of certain classes or groups deserve favored treatment by virtue of their perceived superiority, as in intellect, social status, or financial resources.

Whose cliffs these are I do not know.
His house lies under boulders, though;
He will not see me climbing here
His body lies 'neath scree and snow.

My partner he must think it queer
To stop without firm anchor near
'Tween teetering blocks and mossy seep
To seek a route up fractured tiers.

He gives our tattered rope a take
And asks if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of tumbling stones and guillotine flakes.

The rock is crumbly, sharp, and steep,
But I have a crevasse to greet,
And piles of choss before I sleep,
And piles of choss before I sleep.

The great thing about it is that when it hits you, it just explodes into dust and does no real damage.

Choss has come of age. Great liturature, Movies, magazines, T-shirts. All we need now is action figures and lunch boxes.

Just up behind the house a click on the sunny Colorado Chossapalooza tour … for some Gneiss Choss:






Route on the left,
60 meters, one bolt and assorted rock ticklin' trinkets:




Drilling:





Next route to the right:
Stich succoring the lichen and brittle flanges:






Second pitch as clean as Choss gets!






Happy ChossAholics on the summit!
James Peak and Mount Evans in the distant background:

ChossAholics

That's a good one. Little chance of recovery though. It may take 13 steps or more. The only cure would be abstinence.

NEVER!!!!

Tar, rest assured that I wasn't impugning your knowledge of the subject.
That stuff did look fair to licheny which can provide a worthy experience
on its own merits. I can recall being nearly blinded and rendered
instantly asthmatic on a few occasions. :-/

Munge, you kinda look like John Cleese atop the castle wall shouting obscenities regarding mothers in boots and elderberries.
Next thing he'll do is fling cows at you!!
