Comments
Slide on a south facing aspect near the mouth of Black Canyon, viewed from a distance near the Birthday Bowls on Cutler Ridge. Ran a few hundred feet, presumably in the storm snow, but certainly not close enough to judge any additional information. The map says the slope is steep, maybe 40 degrees or so.
