More detailed information about the avalanche: 

Me and my climbing partners witnessed the avalanche on Sunday afternoon at 4:45pm. The location was right above the one that burried two climbers on Saturday (04/22). We also noticed the aftermath of multiple fresh avalanches on the same slope between Sunday early morning and afternoon (04/23 04:30am - 04:45pm). Based on our observation the snow above the canyon seems to be very unstable and dangerous.
