First time climbing at "The Fortress" in Sespe Gorge.

Ah, yes, the Fortress of Choss
I haven't been back since sampling it once, but apparently we didn't do the 'better rock' routes.

Sure, that's what they all say to get you to give it another try...

All you Oregon choss-meisters need to dredge out your coveted copy of Nick Dodges "How-to-get-dead in Oregon". Rabbit Ears, the Steeple, Apocalypse Needles, old favorites like the Turkey Monster... I finally got out to Twin Pillars. Even wrote the first ascensionist. F that. I'll choose life.

And then there is Pete Keane's guide to aid climbing the "more obscure" routes at Smith Rock - I used to have a copy.

Any route in that book could easily kill you.

Good times - thanks, Pete.

my pockets are full of fresh mature sand today, and i know i'm happy. that may be the CO plateau's finest powders speaking, though.

in short, yes.

i'd love to sample your wares Dipers - NZ alpine? if you ever make it to the Plateau i would love to show you my perspective. sedimentary rocks, tectonic stability, etc.

It is kind of a shitty route.

It's choss season again! Here's a few shots from Friday's outing to Vail, the one in Washington, not Colorado. It's a new FRAC area, a nice addition to SW Washington's sparse climbing offerings.
