Other Comments:
While we had no sudden results in our CTs we had previously identified through hand hardness tests the layer that failed on our ECT after 30 taps. See snow profile for details. It was an ECTP30, down 60 cms from surface on depth hoar. The second image is from a nearby pit on a East aspect with no ECT results.
