Observation: Turnagain

Location: Cornbiscuit

Route & General Observations

Toured around Cornbiscuit with runs on north, south and east aspects. A few notes: Gully #2 on Cornbiscuit slid in the last storm cycle. Both the debris pile at the base of the run and the crown are partially covered. What you can see of the crown looks to be about 3′ – but it’s hard to tell. Also noted the cornice break on Goldpan of which I have attached a picture. People should be aware that this is a repeat offender and should treat that zone with caution. Links to past observations of that same spot below.
