Remarkable that the boulder moved from that particular spot. Thanks so much for the photos. I don't see slide marks in the photo, so it appears that the boulder rolled from that spot? Have to look at old photos and try to identify the boulder that moved.
Thanks for the heads-up. Luckily this looks like an isolated boulder with a lot of debris below...that's pretty amazing!
Looks like it would be good to stay clear of that area so I'll post it tomorrow. Then perhaps a clean up effort from the top down.
Luckily no one got hurt or worse when this happened.
Thanks for the warning...dwight
Hey Paul...let's talk about organizing a clean up effort.
I think that it is extremely poetic that this boulder that has stood alone for big years took a long awaited roll with no one there to see...let's talk..d.
It was very large...maybe 8'x8'x10', no freezing, rain etc. but who knows. Wasn't a particularly steep stance. The good news is this is an isolated event...not like the Cap Rock is exfoliating. Anyway, I'll be posting Tollhouse to warn of the area and providing numbers to report a human inspired event. I ::think it is a possibility.
Will be putting together a Clean up event with localsin the near future...come join and bring a helmet!
Hope all's good with you...dwight
I was thinking we could clear the area below, and on rappel trundle small stuff. But take a haulbag and lower it off with us from the big tree, then fill it with the bigger blocks and use a 2:1 big wall haul to bring it back up, so we don't damage hardware below. Let me know if a crew takes shape.
