You know Crunch, I've got a stash of some real nice Jurassic Wingate things that are tall and virginal, some of the poorest cemented Jwg I've known, and you probably wouldn't even be interested if I were to cut you in, would you? You really do have a dirt addiction, don't you?

Thank you for normalizing my obsession with good old loose quartz sandstones. Seriously, I feel much better about these, my chosspiles of a more standard fare:

This has to be my favorite choss climb yet. On sight lead ground up of "Into The Mystic". I had a drill but wouldn't use it till I got to the top of the pitch. My wife said there were piles of crap coming out of that chimney/stream vent hole. She said that she almost vetoed the climb. She didn't relieve that her vote didn't count. My blood was up. I had to finish it and find out what was up this vertical cave.

So, Your Plaidness, kindly elucidate us: is that truly the entrance to Mordor?

It's cleaned up and it doesn't have a secret door or anything. Anyone with the will to brave the darkness my enter. No orc, dwarfs, hobbits, elves, or such. But there is a pack rat that keeps eating my webbing on my anchor up there. I am going to install chain and unless he has steel teeth that should take care of the little bastard!

Here is a pic of the upper entrance. It is natural. I call it The Window To Heaven.

I have removed all the loose rock so it's not a death route anymore. You do need several headlamps to see in there. But you can leave your swords and magic sticks at home.
