Watch a Timelapse of the Record Breaking Climb of El Capitan

Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds demolished the climbing record of El Capitan, and the video of the climb is amazing

The Nose of Yosemite’s famous El Capitan was once thought to be unclimbable. Since the first ascent up The Nose in 1958, the fastest time to climb the rock face was set in 2012 at 2 hours, 23 minutes and 46 seconds. In October 2017, that record was demolished by Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds, who climbed the face in 2 hours, 19 minutes and 45 seconds.

The record-breaking speed climb of El Capitan was captured by photographer Tristan Greszko, who made the above timelapse video. You can see how big the project was with the amount of “pit stops” the climbers had set up during the climb. Climbers were waiting for them at different areas on the wall to assist them throughout the climb.
