The Middle Earth Wall at Burge had a massive rock fall recently. I'd guestimate the total amount of rock that came off to be close to 200 tons! (The "flake" that fell was a big inverted triangle about 40-50' on each side and maybe up to 5' thick.) This will make all the surrounding routes safer…. and opens up a new face for climbing.
