Here's That Telegraph Hill Rockslide That Nailed a Car

Posted By on Mon, Jan 23, 2012 at 4:45 PM

Update, 4:40 p.m.: The Oldsmobile potentially totaled when tons of rocks tumbled down the side of Telegraph Hill at 8:40 this morning has been pulled free -- and it's seen better days.

SF Weekly systems administrator and scratch photographer Paul Dahlke was on the scene:

Original Story:

SF Weekly's Joe Eskenazi snapped this shot this morning. Reporters are being turned away from the scene (near Lombard and Montgomery), but Eskenazi first snapped this photo and then monkeyed up the hill for an aerial view.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
