The Captain of Yosemite

El Capitan

On one of our hikes this weekend, this site greeted us as we came around a corner. This is the southeast face of El Capitan, which contains the Dawn Wall. On January 14 of this year, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson completed the first free climb of the Dawn Wall.

Below is what that 3,000 foot climb looks like, looking up from the valley floor.
