Mountain Stymier

Slide, 'lanche,
Lists of ladders 
Rung out
Structural corruption
Hands won't hold
While feet trail above
Which upside points
Down the steeper grade

Looking back, we might have
Blown away, in elements, 
The opposite of fire
With or without 
A shoulder boulder

Forces are malign
And of course against
The evens, as odd as 
My witness, inconsistent
Signature move
Craggy, sharp, high,
Like yesterday morning

Assigned to winter
Just above base campers
Cold toes and frigid thoughts
