Another rockfall on the Stawamus Chief by Squamish caused sparks to fly as tumbling rocks collided with each other.
Local resident Alexis Birkill runs a webcam that is always watching the stunning rock formation. They shared a video of the rockfall on social media shortly after midnight on Saturday, November 20.
“Much smaller than last time, and originating below Second Peak, but with the same flashes of light as the rocks collide,” they said.
