Comments
At 11AM my partner and I found a spot to potentially drop in between two cornices along the North side of the Patsy ridgeline .  We chopped off a microwave-sized piece of cornice which triggered a windslab about 50 feet wide. The trigger point was about 4 inches deep but the slab maxed out around 18 inches in spots.
