|Kruser in Line of Sight with The Pinnacle - Microdot to Looker's Right|
We re-evaluated our plan considering the recent heavy snow, natural avalanche, and two substantial whoomphing settlements we felt on the ridge. We skied down our uptrack. As I started skiing down, I wondered if our original plan could have been pulled off without incident. That is until I heard the slab avalanche I remotely triggered, and peaked at it over my shoulder as it ran beyond a convexity on the ridge, I was very happy to go down the safe way.

The remotely triggered slab ran down the righthand slope, behind where Kruser is ascending in the photo above. Relative to the same photo, I was skiing more toward the lefthand slope in the foreground. Live to ski another day.
