See how even this innocent little outcropping is totally fractured into loose blocks. That's why there's still so much untapped choss potential in the Black.

Including long routes. The painted wall is about 2000' high. The narrowness of the canyon means you have another big wall right behind you.

A little Idaho Sawtooth Mt. Choss from a hike up to Sawtooth Lake last week.

The most impressive is un-named, but I think it deserves a ST contributor name. Mt. Rottenjohnney.

Then there are the "Big Black Dykes" surrounded by more fine Idaho Choss.

The second one with the intrusive dykes, well that just looks perfect!

Mungeclimber: The Big Black Dykes are just down from Mt. RottenJohnney and maybe the dykes are not rotten. Everything else along this ridgeline is really, really, rotten.

*raises hand*

Is it OK to say I am kind of over it?

I have loved and lost choss.

In retrospect it was a masochistic relationship...
which is OK, I am a climber - masochism is kind of built in.

I have found a new, granitic perspective that is less loose...

Go ahead, hate on me. :(
