I almost got the chop there in May of 81' by a huge rockfall. Enough to fill a train car. Hit some of my gear on the ground as I hugged the slab in front of me. Granite dust temporarily blinded me. No climbers above nor recent weather events. Notice the lack of trees at the base.

The Largest rockfall in recent years happened in 2013. a large chunk came off above the Duet buttress obliterating trees at that base, smashing flat bolts on the rock and leaving pockmarks and dust covering the lower pitches. The origin of the rockfall can be noted in this shot by the clean white rock scar in the upper left hand corner
