"Suitable"? That's the method I use to get up muddy inclines of 45Â, because
that way I don't have time to slip.

I did not use the word "suitable".

ARGH! Sorry! "favourable".

And I'm not sure what your point is, unless you want to claim
you can run up a 45deg incline on *any*
substrate, including, for example, wet smooth ice.

Wet smooth ice does not work, but most or maybe all kinds of mud I've encountered on inclines ( = probably all that don't flow downhill under their own weight) work.

You'll have to ask Don about that.

That's why I asked in public. I just didn't want to start a whole new post just for this question.
