Comments
A lot od wet slides late morning in Primrose Cirque. Good size loud slide north east aspect of East peak, see photo. Looked like a big waterfall for about 30 seconds, and a trickle for another 30 seconds. I also saw several small wet slides coming out of steep chutes and spilling over cliffs below Robert's Horn.
