Watch Big Mountain Face in Brazil Fall Down

BroughtToYouByPetzl_790-tomato

On April 16, the face of a granite dome in Brazil fell off. It is known as rock exfoliation and while it happens around the world, it is rarely filmed. On March 28, 2009, around 45,000 cubic metres of stone fell from Ahwiyah Point near Half Dome in Yosemite. Online reports claim the Brazil rockfall was bigger.
