Okay I realize that this has probably been asked before (i couldnt find it) but can you climb at the Palisades.

I took the train into NYC last weekend, from right by the Tappan Zee Bridge and there are quite extensive cliffs on the other side. Im assuming its choss??

And how chossy, youd be amazed at how desperate people can be to look for new rock!

Cheers
Dominic

I don't know what choss is. If that means rock unfit for technical climbing, then that noun is accurate. Palisades diabase tends to come off in blocks.

I did a search in All Forums on the word Palisades, looking for anything Newer than 1 year.

This same forum, April 26 2002, there was a thread started entitled Palisades. It's all in there.

Can I go back to bed now?
