Here is more of a writeup about the Warm Springs rockfall. I don't think it's been posted here yet. If so, sorry for the dupe.

As a practicing geologist, the phrase that comes to mind is, "Woah, Dude! that's some rad shit!"

Definitely going to make things more interesting next spring.

Glad I wasn't scouting the rapid at the time. I'd hate to be at the bottom of that impact crater...

Thanks for posting this David.

It looks like Warm Springs is going to be basically unrunnable (unless you have a creature craft.)

I reckon everyone should not even bother to put in for permits this year.

I heard that there isn't even going to be a permit lottery in 2013.
