Quest for Choss - TR on obscure desert towers

Postby Brian C » Wed Oct 10, 2012 8:11 am

Derek had already posted a wonderful trip report here on 14ers on our recent climb of Echo Tower, so I decided to skip posting a separate TR. But, I did write one up and it includes many additional photos and a couple other towers that Noah and I climbed on the way. If you'd like to check it out please do! It can be found on summitpost as Quest for Choss or on Brian in the Wild.

Cheers!!

Brian

The shadows in that last picture looks like two g-men come to take you out and the moment you turned and saw them... :lol:
- Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
