Comments: 

Remotely triggered the main east face not long after the initial one.  Aspect wrapped NE>SE and ran at top of "youngest"/highest/most recent facets beneath the week's storm snow.  Interesting to continue to collapse and spiderweb the hangfire as I continued up the ridge to the Reynolds summit.
