Really enjoyed the article in the Mazama annual Plaidman. Makes me want to go back - something about the smell of Gorge moss...smells like adventure. Was craning my neck (again) yesterday looking at those piles...I mean towers above 84 just east of the dalles. Look nice.

Thx John. I had fun writing that story up.

That picture was from Radek's scent via his new line on St. Peter's Dome with his wife belaying.

TR here:http://www.summitpost.org/st-peters-dome/401215

His account of pulling up onto the mossy blocks at top of the 96 foot band, to the ledge was what inspired me to bring the moss ax to assist in making that move. The heck with a hook. I'll take a moss ax any day. Here is what one looks like.....

Don't do this to perfectly good kids. Choss is not a life style I would sign anyone up for.

Friends don't let friends choose choss. Choss isn't a choice.. it's a lifestyle you learn to lovingly embrace when every hunk of rock within 100 miles is crumbling POS and your love of climbing outweighs your fear of headwounds.

@justthemaid Ode de Choss. Someone should put music to that.... maybe with kazoos and maracas.
