Comments
Exiting Grizzly around 1600 and noticed debris pile that neither myself or others in the party noticed on the up. Walked up to check it out. Not a huge avalanche, but definitely would be a unenjoyable ride in more exposed terrain. Photos are from below the slide and debris looking up at where it originated.
