Above Morse Creek pond while headed up to Sourdough Gap. Saw a big crown from the across the valley. I believe the face is Cupalo rocks / Shane’s.
Through binoculars the crown appeared to be 4-5 feet tall and an estimated 100-150 yards wide. New snow had fallen so we opted not to go check out the debris field. The slide seemed to be a day or two old as the debris was mostly covered over. Slide was on a NW aspect of Cupalo rocks.
