Comments
Sizeable pocket pulled out on traverse line from Cardiff Pass to lower Holy Moly. Spotted from Low Ivory. I skied this traverse earlier in the day, wondering at the time why I was taking a chance!! Lots of collapsing and cracking in Cardiff today, numerous small releases on steeper banks. The skiing was fast and good. Decided to ski out BCC and not mess with return over Cardiff Pass.
