PICTURE by GREGORY KARL. Wilmington Slide from Clark.
About 1900' in elevation in the runout.
Gregory in comparison to a debris pile.
A bit of the bank missing on a turn.
Typical rock hopping portion for nearly a mile.
Small adjacent slide peeking over the treeline...first view in the drainage.
No erosion here.
Slab portion of the slide.
Gregory responding to my exclamation..."Hey look here!"
Best view of the slide proper.
Basaltic dike and foot. Foot not indigenous to the slide.
Long run of the dike.
Gregory on the first pitch.
Dominant ledge at the turn.
Resting with a view.
15' ledge and mud collection.
Greg at the low end of the ledge.
Atop the ledge looking toward the end of the Wilmington Range and down the runout.
Getting nearer to the top.
Cool striations with Greg at the far end of the base of the headwall.
Gregory Karl looking up the right-hand conservative side after the main mud deposit below the headwall.
Yup it's that steep, no camera tricks. This was taken at the base of the wall of ledges on the left that I climbed.
Lower bumps of the Wilmington Range.
Typical slope of the top portion. Crack on the right-hand side was my bailout after getting hung up.

Cooper Kiln Pond.
