Just a warning about current, significant rockfall on Middle Cathedral. It doesn't affect any climbing routes (except some fairly good obscure routes to the way left)but if affects the descent route for the East Buttress and DNB. The gulley that is down climbed and rapped between Middle Cathedral and the Cathedral Spires has experienced a significant rockfall in the recent past (affects every square inch of the canyon)filling the canyon with signifcant loose debris with the slopes above looking like they may slide again. Also the two rap stations to deal with the two steps (single bolt stations each)recieved damage with the hangers being bent and the bolts taking some impact damage,(I used them but wasn't totally comfortable).
