Feb 22 SH sitting below 70-90cm of Fist. The shovel was easily beaten to within 15cm of the interface and then failed CTM14 RP on 2-3mm SH. Test repeated twice with similar results. RP is slightly misleading as it took a few loading steps to cross the column, but all the overlying snow was fist with unconvincing slab properties, then 4F immediately below the interface. Will be heads up hockey if the slab above gains cohesion sitting on an army of 3mm hoary frost soldiers.
