On our exit out from our tour today we took a break near the top of Red Rock Chutes. Peering into the chutes noticed a wet point release step down and entrain a fair bit of snow.  Ran a suprising distance.

Close up of the debris. May not burry you but could definitely push you into something unwanted or rake you over some rocks.

Comments

All it took was warm temps and a bit of sun on the red rock to get the party started.
