Second Yosemite rock fall
A MASSIVE new rock fall has hit California’s Yosemite National Park, cracking off the El Capitan rock formation, injuring one person and sending huge plumes of white dust surging through the valley below.
The slide came a day after a giant slab of granite plunged from the same formation, killing a British man on a hiking visit and injuring his wife.
Climber Ryan Sheridan, left had just reached the top of El Capitan, a 2307m formation, when the rock let loose below him. “There was so much smoke and debris,” he said. “It filled the entire valley with smoke.”
