Mt. Equinox rock slide

It ain't pretty, and it's a little difficult to get to, but there is a rock slide on the east side of Mt. Equinox in SW Vermont that provided some excitement for me today. You can see part of the slide from down below in Manchester. Has a steep footwall a good 100 foot high that I did not attempt cause I couldn't find a way down to it (hiked down to the slide, not up to it), but I got onto the slide just above the footwall. Very rubbly, wet, and some rock sections (schist) that are stable. If you're not careful, you could get the whole thing moving - downhill (not good for your partners below).
