Route & General Observations
7″ of new snow at sunburst treeline. Snow fell inverted with the last traces falling around 1pm melting instantly on my gear. Did not complete pit tests due to snow being unconsolidated. Loose snow avalanches on Magnum.
Variable snow depths across sunburst treeline and face, indicating storm/wind effect. It appeared that southerly to westerly got the most, but my visibility was limited in the morning.
