I'd say it takes a combination of strong adductors, abductors, glutes and overall core. Flexibility is required to ensure you don't drop the turd on your ankles. Strong stabilizer feet muscles needed for balance. I suggested the frog stretching exercise 3x/week.

On the other hand, equally important is strengthening your anal muscles bc you cannot always just squat and s**t anywhere. When the urge comes, you want to contract your lower core and glutes inferiori and close the hole. Don't ever fall for the "oh maybe I'll just rip a lil one" trap. I suggest a kegel exercises 3x/week.

Here's an icon from the days of yore that could be used to denote a summit deuce...

this could be the difference between "pooping on a peak" vs "pooping a peak", bill we need to add an asterisk to the poop checklist

Yes! Allsups burritos. I haven't had one in years. The small town I grew up in in Texas had only two gas stations and one was an Allsups. The smell of the fryer hits you in the face when you walk in.

I guess a backpacking trip is out of the question, or you'd be really full up after a couple of days. Carrying all that extra weight up the mountains seems a little problematic.

And rules out burritos before a hike.

I'm trying to convert myself to wag bag only, always packing my poop out. Just seems like there's so many people roaming about in our mountains that the impact of human waste is going to catch up to us fairly quickly. I've always kept one in my pack as an emergency, but I'm trying to start using them anytime I'm staying overnight outside and don't have access to a proper toilet (car camping, backpacking, whatever). It's a big ask for people to do since the idea of packing your poop out is not exactly attractive, but it's really the only way to properly reduce your impact if you truly care about that sort of thing.

I have a small Opsak dedicated to wag bag pack out. Totally takes care of any associated smells. It becomes a non issue, really. And I find a wag bag much easier to use than digging a proper cat hole.
