Avalanche Synopsis from the USFS Snow Rangers

Here is a detailed synopsis of the events surrounding the avalanche in Central Gully last week. The analysis at the bottom has some valuable information about why things went wrong for the group up there. I'll refrain from making comments about the event; suffice to say the desire to have a successful climb, which was for a very honorable cause, likely clouded their decision making ability.
