There is debris in a lot of the expected places. The Source Lake fan is largely debris covered down to the lake. The area under the Bryant Peak Couloir is less debris filled but has plenty of runnels. The crust gained strength with elevation, notably above 4300' becoming supportable to ski penetration but not to boot penetration.
Dug a pit at aprox 4600' on the ESE facing slope, west of the divide.
2.5cm of Graupel on top of the 10.5cm 1/13 crust.
Test results yielded: CTN, ECTX, PST End Down 44
1/13 crust failure on hand shears required coaxing but were clean.
