El Capitan


Spot Comments:


  • Many years ago I had the pleasure of climbing several routes at the base of El Cap. It was pretty overwhelming looking up at 3000 feet of gorgeous granite... while climbing it.

  • Be prepared to be overwhelmed by this awesome monolith. I cannot drive into the park without stopping and laying in the meadow and taking it all in. It never gets old. The most beautiful place on Earth? Quite possibly.

  • You don't have to be a climber to be in awe of The Captain! Whip out your binoculars and marvel at the wall rats working those routes in the summer.

  • El Cap is one of the reasons to visit Yosemite.

  • The classic hunch of granite, the classic.
