May 7, 2011 Alpental

We skinned up in light rain. Avy had gone down to the juncture of the cat track from DG to Lower Int'l - plan for UI was scrapped when I saw the debris and modified to take the track to Armstrong's top.

Approaching the track, we heard and saw multiple slides over the cliffs, some pretty big and scary in the direction of the track, so we just turned around and enjoyed some sticky mashed.

At the place we turned there was a big washing machine-sized wheel. 20+ climbers practicing self-arrests came right from under the avies, and next to the big one (probably from yesterday?)

Be careful!
