That the El Capitan climb could be done in under 90 minutes. After removing the piton she re-climbed the route from the ground. There are about ten moves on it, and the holds are small and far apart.

The video was shot by Jimmy Chin who also photographed the climb for an upcoming documentary by National Geographic. You hear that he just slipped, and it elements you think. The crux is located about eighteen hundred feet above the ground. Archived from on December 1, 2008. Rehearsed, not reckless; planned, not spontaneous; life, not death. On October 22, 1999, BASE jumper and stuntwoman Jan Davis died during a jump intended to difference the death of Frank Gambalie who had landed safely but drowned while fleeing park rangers, and to demonstrate the safety of BASE jumping.

I would have to put a bunch of work into it, and so I finally just did. At the bottom, I went back to my van and did a hangboard workout, which seems weird.

Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell climb El Capitan’s Nose in under two hours, beating their own record set last week - Climbing in North America.

Gravity usually wins, which is why most everyone trekking up mountains or frozen waterfalls uses ropes and specialized equipment to stay alive. The core difficulty of climbing is inescapable, but you can mitigate the consequences and, you know, not die. Free soloing, however, is a hardcore offshoot of rock climbing where climbers defy safety and scamper up rock faces and mountains without ropes or any gear that would save them from a fall. The 31-year-old Sacramento native is the first person to scale the wall without assistance. Honnold has free soloed other notable cliffs, such as Half Dome and , but El Capitan is in a class by itself. The granite cliff was and it looms 3,000 feet above the floor of Yosemite Valley, jointless, imposing, and completely vertical. This is the big classic jump. Honnold apparently began planning the attempt over a year ago and a small group of collaborators helped him prepare in secret. He trained in China, Morocco, and Europe for the ascent, and even tried to scale the wall last November before realizing that the conditions were not right. Honnold is a meticulous student of climbing, and he. Some of his poise can be attributed to his detailed preparation. He is obsessive about his training, which includes hour-long sessions every other day hanging by his fingertips and doing one- and two-armed pullups on a specially-made apparatus that he bolted into the doorway of his van. He also spends hours perfecting, rehearsing, and memorizing exact sequences of hand and foot placements for every key pitch. He is an inveterate note-taker, logging his workouts and evaluating his performance on every climb in a detailed journal.
