Thinking. I should probably do it a little more often. Today's low snowpack caused my splitboard a little bit of damage that I am not overly excited about. Not to mention that my ascent skins froze and I ended up having to wade through waist deep snow punching all the way to the ground while my skins were in my coat thawing out. For every 30 steps I took I went ten feet.
The above photo is me not thinking about the thin coverage. I am glad I didn't catch a rock or pop loose turning out of this line... Taking a tumble was not an option.
