Hourglass Cliffs - Weibel's Wobble Map

Weibel's Wobble is a route through what are often referred to as the Hourglass Cliffs. The Hourglass Cliffs are a rock outcropping that is exposed to high winds. The snowpack is often very thin. The thin snowpack coupled with the many rock features means that there are often small avalanches in Hourglass Cliffs.
