This choss is in New Zealand. You can't see it but Andrew in the pic is actually toe hooking to prevent falling into space, what with being upside down and all.

Some of these pix (thanks for sharing BTW) look like good stone. Let me show you what TRUE choss is.

The creator of "This is the Choss", a Choss climbing park, brings you this....The last pitch on the Rattlehorn in City Creek Canyon in SLC.

Backclip,

that's so ultimately chosstasty, and it looks like it's 5.3.


send that rig!

The angle says 5.3 but the loose dirt screams 5.9R. Literally EVERYTHING you touch on that pitch will be on the ground soon enough. We still give him a hard time about this route. When he talked me into going up there we topped out in the dark and could hear all this buzzing by our asses (we were sitting down). Turned out to be a den of baby rattlesnakes...good times!

Any info on the stuff south of the 10 about 25 miles shy of Quartzsite?

Kofa Nat wildlife refuge....

This was the closest to choss we got last weekend. Mud in the horizontal crack. QUE HORRIBLE!

Yikes there Backclip.. I wouldn't categorize that as a "pitch".. I think choss of that caliber needs a whole new term.. I'll think on it.

You've raised the bar. Now that the gauntlet has been thrown down.. I'm forced me to dig up my Willard Island pics for my next thread bump.

We had a typical chosstastic weekend at Echo Cliffs. Climbed a few routes we hadn't done before. The best thing about Echo... even though these quality routes (for some strange reason) were completely devoid of chalk , you could easily tell which holds to use by looking for the glue. Thanks Louis!
