From South Coast Touring:

Quick trip up sky pilot today solid release from gully just above pink slab (1st pic) released 3 times over an hour. Poor visibility on stadium glacier but noticed several car sized chunks that weren’t there on my way up. Including one in the second pic that made it all the way to the top of the moraine on the regular summer route!
