Small soft slab R1/D1 released approx. 150' from ridgeline in center of the East Face Chutes on No Name Peak above Laurel Creek. Slide likely happened on Saturday. Crown is barely visible in the attached photo.
Also, while approaching the Y Chutes on Bloody Mountain we observed a small sluff (D1) natural release in the upper climber's left branch of the Bloody Couloir. The sluff started abou 400' from the summit ridge and ran to down to the large rock buttress - approx. 800'.
Widespread wind transport throughout the Bloody Cirque. Winds were strong enough to blow the slow around, but not strong enough to carry it away - meaning that a lot of loose snow was landing into the surrounding couloirs - something we don't see that often up there.
