Thanks for the great article Jayme Moye! Our group climb up El Cap on Monday was definitely an all out effort for me. The East Buttress had tons of hard pitches with awkward slanted cracks and 5.10 squeezes. But for our friends Timmy ONeill and Hans Florine, this was just an easy warm-up. Timmy was using our climb as a prelude to his big day: Half Dome, Royal Arches, and the Steck-Salathe in 24 hours. Hans is no slouch, either: he was prepping to climb El Capitan 3 times in one day. In order to achieve this feat, Hans rigged lines on the face to create a giant rappel that he could use to “lap” El Cap. Good luck guys - thanks for putting me to shame! http://www.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/activities/climbing/blind-climber-sets-el-capitan-record/ Mountain Hardwear SCARPA LEKI LifeProof Charley MaceThe Trust for Public Land shared Erik Weihenmayer's post.
