Comments: 

Connecting the dots of over a mile wide set of naturals from Willard Peak (SE facing) to Ben Lomond (NE) facing at 9300'.  Crown not investigated but guesstimated at 2' deep with lowest crown at 8300' on headwall.  Hard to really note any undisturbed snow for over a mile along the headwall and below.  Interesting to note the dry snow slides then gouged into wet loose below 8000' feeding into Cutler Creek.
