Rockfall on El Cap
Yesterday a huge rock fall occurred on the south east face of El Capitan. Amazingly, as its currently 'big wall', season, nobody was harmed.
Routes were being climbed at the time, but fortunately these routes were not in the firing line. If anyone was heading over to the East Buttress it would have been fatal!
Climbers are advised to STAY AWAY from this area, as further rockfall looks likely.

Dali's Hole access issues - Progress
Progress has at long last been made on securing access to Dali's Hole at Dinorwig Slate Quarries.
