Comments
I saw a few more cornices like this (tuskarora) that didnt trigger a slab. This one seemed to have a small(10' long) fracture line too below cliff band but was basically a loose dry. Not sure on the size of cornice. there was small cornice debris at bottom, probably a rough ride over the cliff for the cornice. Also saw somebody ride seagull chute successfully.
