Pretty terrifying to consider that the massive chunk of stone behind the belayer fell to the earth and is no longer there, right?! Apr 15, 2015

I was looking through old photos with Les Ellison recently and came across the original slide for this one. Les is belaying and the photo was taken by Gail Ellison. Jun 5, 2014
