Joe Lind from CdA posted this July 5 2012. I've added comments on the routes.
"Went to Chimney today. As we arrived at the base I noticed a ton, probably hundreds of tons, of rock on the snowfield that seemed out of place. Looking up at the East Face I was shocked.
The following routes no longer exist!
Pitch 2 of Cooper Hiser
The following partial routes or routes still exist.
East Face Direct
Cooper Hiser pitch 1
Illusion/Eye of the Tiger
No surprise really. New routes to do now!!! ...but likely you don't want to be there until things settle down some. ;-)

A HUGE CAUTION
here. Of the 3 major flake systems left intact (East Face Direct column, Free Friends Column and Eye of the Tiger Column) on the east face, only the 4th has come off in my life time climbing there (40+ years of climbing there and nothing had changed drastically since the 1930s that I know of) And while the Cooper/Hiser chimney was an obvious hazard to me for decades the rest of the route is now rubble in the valley. As are the ones I considered VERY solid... My point is none of the east face climbs are safe right now IMO....
Any one of those huge flake systems could just as easily fall off as Magnum Force and the rest did last week. I would suspect the thing to be rather unstable after a huge rock fall like this or any time after heavy rain of a melt freeze.
Better to be careful and conservative here for a while!
The climb pictured below, Yahoody, and all the climbs left of the climbs is gone!
