Touring Near Angora Peak

A few days ago Jehren and I headed to the Halls of the Gods area.  It was a perfect day for a ski tour.  Sunny skis and calm wind.  A group of South Lake skiers beat us to the Halls line so we opted for a fun, narrow chute in the trees.  We then skinned to a beautiful zone that I've been calling The Bookends.  After skiing a mellow line on the face, we heard strange, large collapsing noises, and despite no additional signs of instability and a low hazard for the day, we opted to stay on more manageable terrain near the skin track.  The Bookends aren't going anywhere and I'm looking forward to another trip later in the season.
