Observed multiple human triggered 20cm deep propagating cracks while on a summit climb during our descent approx 1315 on watch. Propagation extended up to 20 feet in both directions. Isolated terrain feature.

Storm Slab; 4f to F; approx25 degree slope. Appeared to slide on heavier grauple or recirculated particles. Storm slab was in the lee from shifting N- NW winds. 15-30 mph winds seemed ideal for transport to this aspect.

I suspect a move from a general advisory to a standard 5 scale advisory very soon.
