Video: A Speed Ascent of El Capitan

Zenyatta Mondatta is one of the iconic climbing routes on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. It is often used as a challenging introduction to aid climbing, and is a test piece for taking on some of the other more difficult routes that El Cap has to offer. Back in October of last year, three climbers – David Allfrey, Skiy Detray and Cheyne Lempe – made the 16-pitch ascent and filmed their efforts. The result is this fantastic 9 minute short film that documents their speed ascent of line. This is definitely a good way to wrap up the week, and send us into the weekend. Enjoy!
