Meanwhile, all I’ve done this summer is fly over Yosemite.
In a jet.
Even from there, it looked pretty cool. I couldn’t see these guys from my vantage point 20,000 feet in the air, though, and since they did this a month ago and I flew over Yosemite this weekend and I cannot see back in time when I fly in a plane, we are fortunate that they brought a camera and filmed their exploits.
Yes. You should watch their videos. And probably start doing some pushups in the morning.
Bears! Part 1. Watch it all. Be patient. Don’t skip around.
Bears! Part 2. Ben and Travis recall the past few hours of their day.
El Capitan. “Aid climbing sucks. Aid climbing really sucks bad.”
The Nose In A Day. Travis talks, ten hours into the climb.
The Nose In A Day. Pitch 25. 1:00 in the morning. Spirits low.
The Nose In A Day. Summit. Daylight. Delirium.
Astroman. “That fall is terrifying. And I’ve taken it five times.”
Fairview Dome Attempt. “This is Kill-Ben-And-Travis Weather.”
