We went further up Butler Gulch today, and you could see where there was some major loading. The wind was cranking all weekend.

I was up at the pass when this happened. The slide happened around the time we were getting ready for the first hike. The initial news we got was that it was a close call. Unfortunately it turned out to be much worse.
Stuff was very tender up high and the warning signs were all there. It's way too early in the season for this to have happened. :(
