They are very similar to those on the beaches near my house. I know of one mountain where the talus is very big on average , quarter ton and up and it is breccia. Unusual for breccia the talus blocks are quite geometric and the large angular blocks contrasted with the busy pattern of the breccia was unforgettable.
