An Italian friend described Wasatch skin tracks as being “like paying somebody to watch him make love to your wife. It’s horrible. It’s wonderful. It hurts. It’s expensive. It’s humiliating. It’s exhilarating.” A Catalonian friend cut more to the chase: “Who is the madman who made this trail!” In any case, Wasatch skin tracks have a well-deserved reputation for being steep, icy and challenging. According to the skinning police, the optimum skin track should be 18 degrees at the most and doable in your middle climbing riser, so why do Wasatch skin tracks routinely top out in the mid 25+ degree range and use the top climbing riser so often? The default answer is unbridled machismo testosterone, but there is much more to it than that.
