IB redflags

Climbed up to low saddle this morning. Had a few objectives in mind but quickly discovered red flags. Recent wind loading has created consolidated slabs on lee ward sides of high elevation ridge lines. Very quickly found widespread cracking and large scale propagation as soon as we topped out on the...
