Contest #511: the wall they call El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, USA

Another wall contest – this time a 900 metre monster in Yosemite National Park in California, USA.

It has been a climbing challenge for years, with The Nose in the Centre of the contest image at first conquered in 1957 in a monstrous 47 day effort.

Climbs by groups now can be done in a few days or for those going fast, a few hours.

A route named Freerider was recently climbed in about 4 hours, incredible to me as a non-climber.
