Spent all day yesterday riding mellow open tree runs and it gained us some confidence to go a bit further up the ridge. Moving conservatively we didn't have any woomfphing or shooting cracks and as we stepped out to some slightly steeper terrain our first Woomfph happened and it triggered this slide which ripped across the majority of this south face. Nobody was injured as we were stepping out from island of safety.
