Having seen reports on the dangers of rockfall, we were moving extremely slow and methodical on our descent of the north slopes, and luckily, made sure no one was above or beneath us. One of our party went to test a hold and a 20x10 foot section of the mountainside gave way at 13,900ft. It roared down for about 2 minutes and at least 2000 ft.

The only other party on the north slopes descended a different gully, and we heard them also cause a major rockslide maybe 30 minutes before.

***Please make sure that you don't have anyone above or below you on these routes. It is near impossible not to dislodge rocks or cause slides if there is no snow.
