Route & General Observations

– No current instability observed below 4k (other than glide cracks). Remarkably did not even trigger any small slabs.
– 10′ hip check-bomb drops into Goldpan produced no activity.
– Of interesting note, both Goldpan and the Library are missing cornices in spots where there have been impassable ones in past years. I don’t think they failed, they just aren’t there.
– Most surface hoar in valley bottoms and ridgelines.
– Moderate sloughing.
– No formal stability analysis.
