He cautiously but quickly got out of there.
I don't blame him
This sure does look like fun & sounds like an interesting past time to add the agenda, when exploring the great outdoors

Snatch straps are the perfect tool for the job. They are sufficiently wide to be able to climb vertically with no foot holds without being to hard on your hands and yet they roll up into a nice small, fit easily into your backpack size. The loop on the end is also great for securing to trees and the likes.

Only if you could get your car close enough...
Also as car winches are not designed for lifting I dont know if it would rely solely on the winch (even though im 99% sure you would never have an issue)

Could always take a folding shovel and get out the hard way
