ROCKFALL IN GARNET CANYON!! - AUGUST 27, 2013

Early on August 27th a large rockfall event occurred on the north aspect of Nez Perce Peak. Several very large rocks fell from a high cliff face that sent many large rocks rolling out from a chute above the South Fork.  Some of these large rocks came to rest near the South Fork climbers trail.  This area remains active and is a clear reminder to us all that the  mountains hold this potential.  

Care should be taken when passing beneath this area to access the South Fork of Garnet Canyon.
