SS-N-R2-D1(maybe D1.5)-U 

I noticed this slide as I made my way up the hourglass around midday today. exact details are a bit tricky to determine due to the path being filled in by subsequent loading. I would guess the crown length no more than 50' across and would put the run length in the ballpark of 500' and slab depth is unknown. The debris pile did not look impressively large. and I suspect the pocket that broke loose was pretty small. It certainly ran a long way and over some nasty terrain.

I suspect but can not confirm this slide took place during a loading event either yesterday or the day before. certainly after the most recent snowstorm on Dec 28.
