Went there yesterday and the east facing snow above 12,500 is pretty scary. About a foot and a half of wet, unconsolidated snow, waiting to slide.i saw the sign of a large wet slide out of one of the couloirs. Was that yours?

The slide I saw was 2-3 couloirs north of Humphries. I had a couple of small surface wet slide off "ski cut" turns on a roll over at the top of Humphries. Nothing popped and the bulk of each slide rolled to a stop. Was up Rock Ck. last weekend and everything froze each night. But still not true corn, and starting to bump. Snow line is higher(11k+) and I think I'm done hiking with my snowboard. Shasta or bust?

nice thanks for the eastside TR...view from the top of Humphreys to the great divide was inspiring...looks like the mosquito season wont last long this year with the basin that dry already... Seeing that Golden has officially put me into summer mode but im stoked to see those sick couloirs for next season.
