ElCap Report 5/26/09
By Tom Evans
Yo… Nice day if you like great weather until about 4pm and then a busting thunderstorm! Or, nice weather until 1:25pm and then a roaring avalanche over on the West side of the Captain. It was too far west to hit any climbs but Alex Honnold saw it up close from the Headwall of the Salathe and said it was raging! The dust cloud rose up to the height of the Cap. Patty got a video, as Sean’s dog alerted her to it! I called it in, as did others I’m sure. Our Jr. climbing ranger Max came down to get the details.
