Poor Climbing & Skiing Conditions in Avalanche Gulch
Climbing Route(s): Avalanche Gulch
Trailhead(s): Bunny Flat
Date/Time of Observation:Monday, April 12, 2021 - 8:15am
Some pictures showing how poor the climbing and skiing conditions on the south side are now (monday 4/12).
Penitente's have formed in many areas above 10,600 ft. Lots of dust/dirt blown over the snow causing accelerated snow deformation.
Encountered multiple boulders perched precariously, ready to fall when their snow support melts away. (moved them to be more stable, but they're still going to go at some point)
Thank you Shasta Avy Center for all that you guys do :)
