A particularly famous example would be the massive rockfall on the Petit Dru (Mont Blanc) in 2001. As I recall the West Face and South-West (Bonatti) Pillar routes were all totalled by it!

This sort of geological mishap affects British sea-cliffs al the time. A couple of well-known ones were the Johnny Dawes & Paul Pritchard horror show Come to Mother (E7 6a) which fell into the sea a couple of years after they did it back in the 80s. Another high-profile one was Nick White's Earth Rim Roamer in North Devon which climbed a spectacular arete that subsequently fell down so Nick went back and climbed it again - Earth Rim Roamer II.
