“Snowshoe Bouldering“- exactly as it sounds.

And “Bush Belay”- variation of the tree belay.
I fight the battle that is already lost.

Asymmetrical Hiking - hiking at times and at places where there will minimum / no people.

It has grown increasing relevant lately - but I've always practiced it I think.

The Woods to me is a place where there are no other people ideally

I encourage everyone with the fitness and ability to get their Asymmetry on too. Save the main trails for old people and children.
