Between Baldy and Schoefield Pass, observed a few U-U-R1-D1 slides on SW/S slopes. See picture.

Snowpack: See attached snow pilot plot. This is the first pit this year and perhaps since 2018 so I could be off by one factor of hardness for 1F and P between 0 cm and 64 cm.
Compression test: CT 29 Q3 on 1F snow at 15 cm.
boot pen: 36 cm
