Just another view of Climax from G2. We saw patrol at the crown line - you can see their tracks enter upper right. I haven't seen a write up on ESAC yet.

Wow! It could have been so much worse. Just imagine if 5 had been open, or if the slide had traveled further.
Scary stuff, great clip.

I think it's way way way more likely that the owner of the video was contacted by a media outlet and was offered one payment to let them broadcast it and a much larger payment to sign over the exclusive rights. Good for her!

Just saw a teaser for tonight's 11:00 broadcast of our local news here in LA (KCBS - 2) of the video. So that explains what happened to the video.
