Glad that slab didn't take you down the couloir with it!

Wow, I went up there the 1st (April) and it was quite dry. I did not see any new snow and everything looked solid. I drove to the summit to check everything out so I didnt test any snow but even close everything looked stable. Your images tell a different story. I see lots of fresh snow on trees and rocks that was not there the prior week. It looks like the mountain got a day or 2 of snow after I left and much colder weather.
