Comments: 
A small point release on upper dresden face ran about 500" and over a cliff it triggered a 300" wide avalanche below the cliff. The southern side of the slide appeared 3" deep. The northern half of the crown (from half a mile away) one could easily make out a density change within the crown and the crown appeared 5-6" deep.
