So that was Juds line.
I would still classify it as a skier triggered slab not a sluff. Look at the way it breaks loose. Sluff doesn't look that chunky. He got very lucky that it went lookers left of the spine and didn't rinse him down the face.
Sorry, apparently my communication skills are inadequate. Jud's line was actually further right of the lines in the video, more on the headwall proper - none of us were featured in their clips(maybe I'll post our vid later)
You're right about the slab - definitely not sluff.
risk vs reward
The eternal dilemma.
I'm sure you've done much gnarlier stuff than what we did!
