Notes

From e-mail: "We bailed on plan A ( bigger couloir ) because of the visual signs of rapid wind loading. We proceeded to plan B and startedĀ getting shooting cracks on small convex rollers. We found a nice small test slope and remote triggered a decent fresh windslab. It was surprising the energy it ran with. We decided to bail on plan b and head home. Remote triggered another smaller wind slab turning around."
