Comments
A group in the ridge just east of Davenport peak said they triggers this cornice fall while on the track and that it broke 3’ out from the track around 12:15.  It was huge and took out tracks and snapped trees.  Looked like a crown from below that was 1’ deep though I couldn’t see the flanks. One photo below is of the cornice several
weeks ago.  It was impressive.
