Any reports of rockfall at Seneca post-earthquake? I know the epicenter was not too far away....

that would be a scary place to be on lead or even up on the razor ridge during an earthquake. I'm curious to hear if the rock is still all there.

ditto. I can think of a loose block or two i wouldn't be surprised to see on the ground.

Can you imagine standing on the Gendarme during an earthquake? Or climbing toward the notch. That would be among some of the worst timing in the world.

Imagine a history of local quakes was what helped bring down the Gendarme years ago.
