Garden City - Swan Peak
Dug this pit on the West-Northwest face near the top of Swan Peak at the steepest part of the slope. I could not get anything to move or go on shovel compression or extended column tests. A last shovel shear test did finally move a small portion of the extended column (i.e., the shovel width) after a lot of force and tugging. The block slumped a very small amount, very little energy at 35 cm above ground (4F layer). Some wind action in a few places but no signs of instability on the climb up or ski down.
