El Capitan

Jun 2nd 2014 — California,Climbing,Walls,Yosemite — 7:09 am

The first day of my life climbing on El Capitan. Perfect weather. Thrutched my way up the first two pitches of Zodiac by myself.

Featuring maneuvers such as cam hooking, a horizontal roof section, many many offset cam placements, and even a bit of free climbing!

  3. Respecte. As far as the rock color change, my guess is it is due to a change in the mineral content of the granite and when the water runs down the face the colors bleed. I know the red streaking in Zion NP is caused by iron in the sandstone (basically rust).

    …and yes, in jeans.
