Location Name or Route
Mineral Fork - Room of Doom
This wet slab was noted on Friday but the time of it's release is unknown. Probably within 48 hours of the observation. Collapsing was noted in shallow unconsolidated snowpack areas.
This is a shallow snowpack location and the avalanche may have failed on basal facets judging from the exposed rocks in the photo. Lots of water percolating through the pack over the last 4 days. Kobernik
