Comments
Saw this crown on the northeast face of Lone Peak from across the way in Bell's Canyon. Unclear when it ran: either during the last storm or (perhaps more likely) with cornice fall. Dimensions are estimates but the debris ran well into the gut of Bell's. Shady aspects feel stable but it was a good reminder that, with a big enough trigger, all sorts of havoc is still possible out there.
