Comments

I triggered this from the shoulder while skinning back up.  This is a very small rollover at mid-altitude on a north facing aspect.  Snow pack is generally 115 cm in the area with 12"of new light density snow.  As has been the case, this ran at the rime crust layer that formed 5 weeks ago in late January.
