Comments
Hopefully someone else has better photos of this slide, I saw it from the ridge to No Name. Most likely ran yesterday or last night. The crown looked a couple feet deep and ran from the more northerly steep roll over to where the slope starts to turn SE, basically the main face.
bad photo was quite a distance away
