Two rockslides have occurred in Yosemite National Park in two days. A spokesperson for the park confirmed to ABC News that a significant rockslide released off of El Capitan, a summit above Yosemite Valley, on Thursday.

The rockfall that had taken place on Wednesday also had occurred on a popular climbing route on El Capitan. On Wednesday, at around 1:55 p.m., the first rockslide took place and killed one person as well as injuring another. It’s climbing season at Yosemite with many people climbing on El Capitan and other routes in the park, even after the accidents. As of now, there are no known fatalities for Thursday’s rockslide.
