The small glaciers below Split Moutain. Notice all the loose debris that has fallen out of the couloirs onto the snow/ice. Not sure if this really qualifies as a glacier anymore but it's labelled as such on the topo.

Looking down at the path up to the North Ridge. It's rather loose here and although you won't go falling thousands of feet, a slip here could easily result in injury. I think started down a bit to the right in the more stable rock.

Another view of the loose area. It's not that bad, but you do need to be careful if you don't want to get bruised up.
