Need to Know
When we approached the yurt for the first time, the slope just south of this line had broken apart but not slid. Clearly this area gets very wind loaded, but the slope should be too shallow to slide.
From the yurt, descend to the main approach track and then put skins on. I'd ascend the main approach trail, then head up to the ridgeline to approach the top of this line.
This is an easily lap-able area with few trees. Makes for a great day near the yurt.
