Nice shots. It looks like the nasty cornice hanging over the West chute is no longer there. I was looking out of my office yesterday wondering if it was still rideable. I might venture up there since the loop is open now. A lot of melting has occurred since I was there a month ago.
This is kind of a long shot, but I’ve been searching blogs for recent hikes in Utah and hiking blogs etc; please read this and forward it on to any friends you have who may have seen my Uncle Eric, any snippet of information may be vital to the search.
