We dug a pit at 2100m, there was 20cm of fresh blower powder, It wasn't a worry though. We found a persistent slab 40 cm down that that failed after 3 hits. And we found another persistent slab about 70cm down that didn't fail that easy. We think it was from the rain crust in early November. The bottom 40cm was pretty firm.
