overhang and waterfall.
|Dave throws a rock, attempting
to knock out tiny chockstone
between large boulders on overhand.
|Dave, from above, drops rocks on overhang.||It moves!||It moves again, but does not fall.|
|A last view. Compare with above: little
chockstone has been replace by larger rock
thrown by Dave.

With the help of the comparison that Charles Danforth had done after the first collapse, I have made a new side-by-side comparison below. Note the differences. Apparently the rocks under the overhang dropped off, leaving that overhang in a very precarious position. It is so precarious that it moved when hit by one of Dave's thrown rocks.
