Route & General Observations

Today’s advisory was right on: “Sun and warming will increase the chances of
cornices breaking and dropping onto slopes today. Give cornices a wide berth from
below and above, as they can do a lot of damage to a person.”

This cornice fall triggered an avalanche that appears to have stepped down in several places.
