Moses-Style


using a found branch as a walking stick.


BUT - to be Moses-Style -- it has to be a fairly cool looking branch - esp. with a distinctive top section.

and it helps if you're in a super cool area too.

I like slabineering! Hiking partners and I have found areas of "class 3 grass" - mostly in the Sangres (terrain, not cannabis). When traversing the worst of San Juan scree, Benners goes into Martian Rover Mode.

More an appropriation of classical mythology than an invented technical term, but I've occasionally referred to the tangled mess that results from a mis-thrown rope (or a lot of trees below) when throwing it to rappel down as a "Gordian Knot."
