Comments
At the pass, top of Porter Fork, traveled west and tested slopes with three cornice drops. One and two produced no results however #3 released a slab approximately sixty feet across and between 2 to 4 feet deep at the crown. Crown was at the ridge and the slab included all terrain within and under the previous two drops. No photos, sorry.
