Comments: 
I was not expecting to find wet activity at this elevation and this time of year. It looks like a few roller balls higher on the slope rolled down and triggered this wet slab. It was interesting to see how well connected this wet slab was it fractured around the rocks. There was a nice debris pile at the bottom filled with both dead and green trees.
