Herman Lake: How Not to Glissade

An early morning wake up call (4:30AM) brought Team Gangels, Fish, and I to the high country for a run up to Herman Lake.  Our attempt to find a route to Pettingall Peak didn't materialize as we we a bit hung out and exposed, so we opted to find a way down.  Unfortunately that meant a sketchy glissade on some iced over snow.  I decided to go for it with gusto and it worked out for a while until I ate it, and ripped up my ass (photo proof below).  Fish suffered the same fate, but somehow TG made it out alive.  Perhaps there is something to wearing spandex in the high country...

Didn't need the cheeky shot and that under the arm shot stinks.

Great way to spend the morning! Nice pics, didn't realize you took so many. Hope the sitting at work hasn't been too painful.

Great to see you guys too. Couldn't think of a better way to start the day. Half a tube of Neosporin later and I'm in a bit better shape.
