The problem of mud is a real one. While I carry pulleys and a rope, you still need an anchor point. It will be interesting to hear of solutions and options.

Before anyone cries "idiot", I also do ride alone, off road and way out beyond choice, but I try to be well prepared for issues like this one. Amplify that by sliding downhill on a steep slope. Sometimes walking out is the last option.
Not riding in the first place may be the obvious solution, but your bike is still in the mud. Hopefully there might be better solutions presented. :)
