Route & General Observations

Spirit Walker, Summit
SSW Aspect, ~3,000ft at ridge crest
SS-AS-R1-D1-I Small avalanche triggered by a ski cut. Bed surface was 4F Surface Facets
Shooting cracks and whoomphs on the ridge crest
A bit of a surprise because it was on the windward side, as evident by the surface texture and earlier
observed wind. We believe the wind pressed slab was new and formed that morning during our accent.
