We were moving on to the top of the slope with the intention of digging a test profile. I jumped up and down several times with no result and decided to jump on one foot to punch deeper into the pack and the failure propagated with quite a bit of energy. 65cm crown, ~120 ft wide. Failed on clearly visible SH layer @70cm. See attached profile dug at crown.
