Yes! Marmots is definitely right now that I see them.

    Every trail of my childhood. We didn't turn around.

I've crossed some pretty sketchy stuff in the Adirondacks, but something about that trail really had me stuck. I think it was feeling off because of the altitude combined with the loose soil from the recent erosion. It just felt like crossing marbles with a twenty foot slide if it went wrong.

Now imagine it in the dark in the winter drunk.

Those were the parties where you were less likely to be hassled by the cops.

I suppose the idea that some drunk kids would have crampons and an ice axe is laughable?

How are you going to carry crampons and an ice axe when your hands are full of five and a half cases of warm Miller Lite?
