Comments
Tour to the saddle of Primrose Cirque. 3 or 4 separate wet loose avalanches released around noon starting on the east facing cliffs of Robert's Horn as they warmed in the sun. Decent corn skiing on the bottom half of Primrose exit. Pic 1, 2, 3: Wet debris runout into the gut of Primrose. Pic 4 (sideways): Interesting route selection with cliffs above and below of a party behind us after slides occurred.
