The bird hauling rescue supplies to the top of El Cap.
From what I have gathered, The lead climber triggered a rockfall that
cut his lead rope, thus sending him on a long free-fall until his haul line (that he was still attached to) caught his fall. This left him hanging over a large roof for hours. His partner seemed to stay in the same spot (next to the haul bag) until rescue. I believe the following climber was uninjured.
Sending prayers and condolences out to the family and Friends on the deceased climber and partner.
