Rockfall evidence at "Hers" in Grotto Canyon


Lots of evidence of recent rock fall from the loose, chossy roof from which the ice climbed named "Hers" seeps, including one particularly large microwave-sized block laying on the ground at its base. I did not witness this rockfall event, but it is clear that it was fairly new; most likely in the past 24 hours with the very warm temperatures we are currently experiencing. This roof that overhangs "Hers" has become notorious in the past year for shedding. Last winter in mid-March (2020), I witnessed a toaster-sized rock fall from the roof on a warm day and hit a climber in the arm while they were climbing.
