Lower in the notch, we found the beginnings of a new breakable crust that was still soft, indicating that snow was not completely refrozen yet. Above the first ice step. We found ~3-4in of new low density snow , breakable crust and a graupel layer that was consistent through a few hundred feet of the gully. Near the WI3 pitch we found supportable crust in a few spots.
