24Jan10 - South Monitor

Danger rating this day was high with pockets of extreme. The compression and extended column test broke to the ground. Cornices were very sensitive and were breaking quite a ways back. Once cornice (in the photo) brake at my feet 6'+ from the edge while I was approaching and almost took me with it.
