“Slide was on a SE aspect. We triggered it from the flat deck that the first photo showing only bottom of the slide is taken from. About 300 yards from the crown which was 4’ish. I’d say r2 d2. It ran the first half of its path but couldn’t get over the flat to get to the second half. Three sleds had ridding to the trigger spot and when the fourth got there we felt a giant whumph. Really good example for us on how just because one person (or3) doesn’t trigger doesn’t mean it won’t happen.”
