Avalanche

Spindrift loaded slope below Aggressive Turtles climb. We experienced a whumph 10 minutes earlier lower down while post holing on approach. I believe this is another case of the spindrift down steep.ice climbs creating a slab close to the wall, as I have experienced before. Red in the photo is the crown, blue the path to flats. No involvement, we easily stepped sideways, but a slide down the path would have led to injury. The bed surface had no foot penetration, presumably a November rain crust.
