First saw it on reddit... here's the quote from Pete's fb


Another HUGE ROCKFALL on the SE Face El Cap!!!

In the dark during rain, can't see. Could see SPARKS thru rain clouds.

Rockfall may have hit road, still falling five minutes!!

Unbelievable!!! It's STILL FALLING!!

We are safe in rain on Wino Tower on the Wall of Early morning light. Will post photos once it gets light. I give permission to all news agencies to use any photos and videos that I post.

Road now closed. No sirens thankfully. Likely no one hit. Unsure if climbers on Zodiac. Unsure what of El Cap still there!!!

Hey John Deucey Middendorf - totally dry again under D4 fly. Not even in bivy sack."
