Avy reports be damned, right, Champ? 
The people that issue them are just punters!

I think that avy reports is a tool to help the climber to take a decision...

I don't think that it is a decision take by other to tell you when you could go or not to the cliff.

I said that those people who refer at the avvy as a law instead of using a dip understanding of what happens and avvy as a tool cause accident indirectly, dead accident.

Ironically Odell's and South have "Low" conditions today (Sunday).  But LL could say the sun is going to rise tomorrow and everyone would jump down his throat.

The rub is in the delivery Eric.
Something like " How many true climber today know that sun rise tomorrow. In golden days fifty climber sit in cliff discuss sun. Sport climber thing it is just light to be used for plaisir. SA is very tanned. I have a master of UV."

Full disclosure: I made the quote up, i know, shocking.

Yes, how can it be extremely dangerous to low danger less than 24 hours later?

Something rotten here. Even All see it: "have you read the avalanche report? NO WAY I would be up there for several days..."

Those who really care about safety of people most acknowledge.

Ironically, I could say you're a retard. But it wouldn't be ironic.

Do you want to try just a little harder making this statement read-able? Iíve gotten fairly good at decoding your posts but this statement is not comprehensible.

Did you actually read the report Champ? It explained quite well what happened.

Iíll give you a hint. 80 mile an hour winds FROM THE NORTH.

Hmmm... what would that do to all the super light density snow in Odellís and South?

But how could it be High the day before?

Well typical NoríEaster pattern the winds started from the E-SE... so that would have started loading those gullies... and they were probably quite dangerous, until the winds shifted and scoured them clean.

I do agree with you that Alís blanket statement was a bit conservative... those who read the bulletin daily are quite used to seeing the danger go from High to Low and back to High within a few days... Itís actually not un-common for a Arctic Maritime snow climate...

But you can keep thinking it is a conspiracy...

"Those who really care about safety of people most acknowledge.Ē

You claim to care about safety, but discredit the bulletin. This is much ďironicĒ IMO.
