Rambler Glossary

Glissaditunity (noun): The opportunity to glissade.

The southwest slopes of Massive had nice, soft snow in the afternoon, for a perfect glissaditunity.

Scrumblewhack (verb): A method of locomotion among a backcountry route that entails scrambling, running, and bushwhacking (hiking also implied), often in alternating succession.

Exiting the drainage, skirting around cliffs and dense brush, and onto the open tundra, required about an hour of scrumblewhacking.
