Glissade

Colorado fourteeners are very popular with climbers in the summer, so I started climbing the easier ones during winter months to avoid crowds. Glissading is so much fun....

Nice

I hadn’t tried glissading in years, just last month on Mt Adams I tried and invented a new technique- I call it GlisSLEDding, that’s where a big guy like me plows down the mountain and ends up with a 300 lb snowball between your knees and bum... very cold.

I tried it on some of the red sandstone here
in Arizona, and it doesn't work as well.

Way too much friction on the rear end !!!

It's the best way to come down a mountain. So much fun.
