Mountain Quake

One doesn't readily think of earthquakes affecting mountain tops, but today I learned that one of the two 'Donkeys Ears' on Mount Kinabalu in East Malaysia was snapped off in a 6.0 magnitude quake. I climbed this 18 months ago (see post). Here's the before & after.
Two people were killed and 100 stranded by falling boulders and bad weather. Lucky I climbed it when I did.
