June 27, ONP Hurricane Environs Big rock slide!!
« on: 06/28/12, 07:45 PM »

North bowl below Victor Pass still holding plenty of snow for turns. The snow softened to smooth corn by 10:30. Intermittent sun and clouds made for a great day to be in the mountains.

We discovered a huge rock slide at the end of the snow finger which made for a nice lunch spot  Wink

Great to hear there is still so much snow up there.  I was curious and almost headed up there on Saturday but decided to take my kids on a hike to Deer Ridge, not much snow there, and I couldn't see to obstruction point etc.

Looks like a brand new bouldering area was created there!
