Definitely brightened my day! Just the right stoke at 5am to go out & notch something way more challenging than what I've been doing the last few trips out....Thanks WSR! Man - you guys are constantly killing it. Just wish the local b/c crew I went with would get into this kinda terrain more...have to save it for solo days.

very nice line. The snow looks great.(we did some lift whoring at the 'ghee sat) things are shaping up nicely down there. Might have to head that way again next weekend since we have no base going on here.
P420-Here are your pit results No really, we had a funky top layer on facets that was a concern, but only about 10 cm of soft slab that was coming out while cutting columns. We dug two pits (one next to the cliffs where the weak layer was found-ct-1, and one in the gut with better results-ct 13). We knew that there was a concern, but not too concerned. We ended up ripping out a soft slab about 50 feet wide on the side wall of the couloir. Nothing too dangerous, soft and not a lot of snow, but enough to make us pay attention to our pit results. Glad we are looking at the snow though and trying to make the best decisions.
