Unaffiliated / Individual
Snowpit was dug on same slope and within 200 yards of Asbestos snowpit from several weeks earlier.
Pit was dug W/SW facing under Andesite Ridge - did not take a formal directional heading. Mostly out of wind exposure, however, after summiting Andesite, wind exposure from the W was noticeable w/ a guess of wind speed around ~20 mph. Did not notice any snow movement due to wind.
PS/PF: 26cm/71cm. Major collapse (approx. 1cm) on the CT to determine weak layer
Prominent ice crust at 70 cm depth, slick surface, but could not get block to slide on it, even on a 36 degree slope. ECTX, CTN.
