Our group attempted to summit Red Mountain on 4/2/2023. The group dug a pit test at 3200' which indicated a large loose 12" layer of new snowfall on top of a ~3" crust. We made the decision to turn back around 4900' due to a weak surface layer on top of hard crust. The new snowfall was largely concentrated will "ball bearing snow" and began consolidating when hit by the sun.
While descending, a small slide was seen on near Kendall Peak at ~4500'.
