Toured up to 3200′, stopping to dig a pit at 2150′ on our way up. Recent winds had blown around the snow above alder line, but there was still 6-8″ soft snow on the surface on the SW face. We found the same poor structure in our pit that we have been seeing throughout the area, with a weak faceted layer sitting on top of a crust about 3-4′ deep. We stuck to mellow slopes, that weak layer is still just too dangerous to be trusted.
We saw signs of a lot of natural activity from the past 2-3 days, some of which had already been reported (Kern, Centerline, Eddies, Pyramid), others were new (South end of Seattle Ridge, north side of Cornbiscuit). Debris was running to valley bottoms.
