Headed for Olsen-South Peak saddle, then opted for lower portion of the right chute on South. Snow was stable, and the packed powder made for excellent skiing on these north-facing slopes.

Snow sluffed from rocky sides made for crud in the upper chute, but nothing had propagated.  The avalanche path to the right (west) of the wide Olsen-South bowl appears significantly wind-loaded towards the bottom.
