Name: Patrick St.Onge
Location: Whitecap Mountain, ME, southwest aspect, rougly 1700′ in elevation

Dug a pit and observed thick facets near the ground. ECTP 14, and a PST on the back wall failed at 25cm. Both sudden collapse on the layer of facets. Images show block after pulling on it for both tests.

Heard and felt whumpfing in a couple spots when skinning back up the north facing snowfields just past the summit.
