1/2 day splitboard tour up to the first high point at Kendall (SW side of the saddle).  Sheltered N aspects contained soft flour, exposed solar aspects were rock-hard suncrust.  Some refrozen loose wet slides on the steep, exposed S aspects.  The upper elevations were good riding.  The dense timber was a combination of heavy soft, and manky garbage.  The manky garbage made for some cursing on the way down.

Dug a hasty pit for fun at 4700' on a N slope and found no surprises.  About 110cm of stable increasing density with no discernible layers.  At the ~110cm mark was the top of a very thick layer of facets under a thin crust.  No action on a column test.
