Obvious avalanche path
Put skins on at about 7,250' Toured up to 10,000' above Dry Lake towards San. G.
We encountered refrozen top surface on some aspects but generally better than what we expected. Some soft snow was definitely to be had.
We observed some shooting cracks and hollowness as we ascended a small gully up to 10,000 on the N facing flanks below San. G.
We observed strange wind affected avalanche debris above us on N. aspects of San. G.
We saw many very clear avalanche crowns on the cirque around Jepson Peak.
