Had just put partner on belay when i looked up to see a powder cloud shoot over the pillar, dropped a shoulder to brace for it and got knocked back into my PAS, weighting the anchor. Buried up to knees on belay ledge i had just stomped out. The next day, a party hiking into the Theft watched a second size1 run over the same spot.
