Comments
There are a series of glide cracks forming along the cliff band below the summit of Willard peak (marked in red in photo). The cracks are where you might typically expect to find the bergscrhund were our snowpack a glacier. As they continue to grow, if they manage to stitch together the resulting avalanche could be quite massive.
