Crews installed a high-speed T1 Internet connection at a home 12 miles north of the site, then set up antennas to get the signal to the solar-powered camera.
On Wednesday at noon, biologists will be releasing three condors on camera that were raised in captivity.
Gediman, the park spokesman, said the massive rock fall was among seven that happened in the same general area during a four-hour period on Wednesday. Officials had no immediate estimate for how much the big rock weighed but Gediman said all of the rock falls Wednesday weighed 1,300 tons (1,100 metric tons) combined. Mason Robison, 38, fell about 230 feet (70 meters) and died.
The park records about 80 rock falls per year, though they are rarely fatal. Robison's gear digging into the side of the mountain caused the rock to dislodge.
The solar-powered “condor cam” allows the public to watch the huge, vulture-like birds feeding, grooming and flying in real time, and enables scientists to monitor them more efficiently.
Canadian climber Peter Zabrok described the rock that fell as "white granite the size of an apartment building," adding that it suddenly peeled off the wall with no warning.
Several condors were seen Monday morning on the live camera eating and preening.
Biologists from the group will zoom in on the birds at key times, such as in the morning when they are most active, Sorenson said.
It was about 130 feet (40 meters) tall and 65 feet (19 meters) wide and appeared to fall from the popular "Waterfall Route" on the East Buttress of El Capitan, Gediman said.
The victims were not identified because officials were notifying their relatives.
