Fremont Peak

This pit graph is the approximate summation of the snowpack within 100 meters of the gps location. Tests were done in various pits within 100 meters of the gps location. Could not reproduce the ECTP result at 50cm. Subsequent shovel shear tests and ECTs revealed that this unstable test result was an outlier and appeared to be isolated. But this layer will need to be considered on other slopes, and going into the future. Steepness was between 25 and 30° in the multiple pits. Aspect of 35° is approximate.
