And yet another video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzRhLs5GkYs, this one with good close-ups showing the size and amount of rock and ice debris. All those who have been on this side of the mountain will appreciate the true scale of this slide.

Wow, those are some impressive forces at work. The third link really highlights the nature of the event much more than the first two. Thanks for linking to it.

I was on Gib Ledges on 6/24 and heard a few medium size slides, but we were down to Paradise before this one ripped. We almost did the Kautz instead, but man, we lucked out with choosing Gib Ledges.
