Clearing of the internal roads of the Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos (ORM), which houses all observatories including the LT, is proceeding apace. Right now the heliport area is being cleared with two power shovels. Those of you who know the ORM will realise this is still a long way from the nearest of the observatories (except MAGIC). The Telefonica mobile network for the mountaintop is now functioning normally.
