Just want to warn folks to stay as far away as you can from the snow/ice field below the K2/Clark Peak saddle. There were numerous natural rockslides today -- some the size of refrigerators. These slides are occurring in both the morning and the afternoon. The debris is spreading several dozens of feet from the impact areas.

I'll second that

Saw a good-sized slide come down from above the snowfield and send debris flying. Stay to descenders left!


Me too!

I saw at least 4 major slides returning over K2 and several smaller ones as we descended the slopes on 8/27. Sounds like a train wreck in there!
