A bit of light relief over at the Highway 97 site in Canada, which continues to slip. Arthon have a pictorial report on their website of the rescue of a mountain goat that had fallen down the tension crack and become wedged 10 m below the surface (all images from the Arthon website):
Fortunately, the goat (now named Houdini) was spotted and a rescue was put in place. Enter the gallant abseilers (you wouldn’t mess with these guys on a dark night):
Hat tip – Andrew Giles again.
