More Canon rockfall
« on: July 10, 2003, 11:34:05 AM »

Will Mayo passed this to me:

Monday night a somewhat large (maybe the size of a garage door) slab fell from the VMC DD. It came from about 100'-150' above the fourth belay of the VMC DD. It pulverized the base of the route. The trees were still covered with dusty mud Tuesday and since it had rained hard the night before, it seems clear that it had happened late on Monday night or early Tuesday morning. The main impacts were around the fourth belay of the VMC DD and fortunately and/or unfortunately, the three bolts are all intact despite four or five collision points each within one or two feet of the bolts!

I was just up there at the base, and saw a huge crator and some rocks. Pretty cool.
