We woke up to a rather loud rumbling noise in the early hours of Sat morning in the pines. My 3 year old kid and I thought it was a some bins being moved about and went back to sleep..However, talk was that a huge boulder fell from near the top of the cliff to the left of the Organ pipes and wiped out a few trees on the way down.
I didnt get a chance to check it out, anyone else have any more details or pictures ?

I heard it also. It lasted long enough for me to think 'its too dam early' and then decide to open my tent and stick my head out. Seemed like a lot of other people had the same idea. Did not see it personally, but i heard it stopped by the base of the Atriade.

'twas a rock coming down the gully.
about a metre across, too big for munchkins to be dislocating.
Goes to show the place isn't as stable as we all take for granite.

I agree, Arapiles is the worst granite climbing destination i've ever been to.

I am waiting for evanbb to enlighten me as to how similar it is to the Booroomba 'quartzite experience', though it is all a matter of cooling as to crystal size!
;P

How does the wayward boulder compare to grit?

If everyone could please stay off my new projects on the "rolling boulder" and also the new projects on the wall it came from.

I will tie a red ribbon around the boulder to signify it is a project so please stay off.

Thankyou. ; )

We would only be impressed if you got the unrepeatable FA on the still rolling bolder.

How much bolder does one have to be to get that kind of first ascent on a boulder?

It's a boulder rolling down a gully and you want pictures?!?

Why don't you get a life and look at porn like the rest of us do!

I saw a girl rush into the path of a very large tufa that was tumbling through the Grande Grotta in Kalymnos... for the purpose of rescuing her backpack that may otherwise have been crushed. From this I conclude that there are indeed people about who would stop to take a photo of a boulder rolling down a gully. So where is this person? :-)

I was trying to be punny. Where are the people who take photos of boulders? Their/they're flat.

Did they pass a cheap car with crook suspension to get there?
