“The run from Crescent Peak.”— Abandoned User
Crescent Ridge itself is a typical ascent for doing another lap or going home. On one occasion, the east winds were so powerful, I was blown off my feet while attempting to summit Crescent Peak via this ridge. First, don't be out there if the forecast calls for significant wind. Second, get out before things get too windy, and too wind-loaded.
I was told a story of this very slope sliding, but only after the skier who triggered the slide had already skied the slope several times. All his tracks were taken out, and the slide went much further than thought possible.
