Traveled up to the Kendall Peak area via Commonwealth Basin. Excited the top of the Kendall Trees into the open area - sculpted areas from a significant amount of wind. Cut a hasty column on a small convexity above the trees - the column was about 35 cm deep - down to a noticeable crust. The column failed at 20 cm as soon as it was isolated. If we had any thoughts of skiing more open terrain, that put an end to it.
