Ridge South above Timber Creek, Schell Creek Range
"This crack occurred as we
approached the cornice."
This slope "failed below a small
cornice" on a "northeast" aspect.
The snow ran a short ways, only
about a "100 ft. down a 30 degree
slope" into the trees.
A view of the snow pack layers at the
crown of the small 'natural' release.
