While the floor is still largely boulders separating small snowfields, Huntington Ravine showcased crown lines, avy debris, and good ice today. Debris on the left side of the Fan resembled a D2 sized avalanche.

Many 1F to 4F wind slabs exist in the gullies, but they appear to be well bonded to the firmer layers beneath.

Above the Ravine, hiking across the alpine garden was a brutal affair due to the breakable crust over rotten snow. Imagine being on a broken Stairmaster.
