Side by Side Comparison

by Charles Danforth (posted March 5, 2004)

To clarify exactly what rocks fell in the collapse, Charles Danforth has created a detailed side-by-side comparison of the before and after photos. His comparison makes it even more clear that the boulders fell because the ledge that had been supporting them broke off.
