Comments
Avalanche was at the bottom of the easternmost couloir between No Name Baldy peak and Pfeifferhorn. Looks to have run at least a couple of days ago, based on the wind transport covering the bed surface and debris. Small (~6"?) crown up in the rocks (hard to see in the photo) appeared to be the first release, which then stepped down to a deeper slab below the couloir, where the crown was ~1 to 2'. Debris was 4F/1F hardness slab, did not inspect the crown. Not clear what it ran on, but we did observe graupel pooling below the coulier.
