Comments: 

Noticed this large wall-wall near climax avalanche on Monday the 10th but poor visibility to see the real aftermath. This slide likely occurred the evening of the 8th during a widespread cycle in this area. This slope likely released simultaneously with Jensens bowl to the north. Evidence of D4 characteristics were present. R4 only due to the lack of debris/ evidence in the toe of runout.
