Butt Skid Plate

Some of the summits here are very steep. In addition, they are covered with decomposed granite, cacti and other unpleasant things. The granite can be anywhere in size from a pea to a bowling ball or larger. When you have to cross large fields of gravel on steep inclines, sitting and "scootching" is the safest way to travel. This will serve a dual purpose of being a seating pad (to stop cactus needles) and a butt skid plate when necessary.
