Video: Climbing Freerider on El Capitan

The Freerider route up El Capitan is rated as a 5.13a, which means it is an extremely challenging climb. Recently, a team of three rock climbers took on that route, and filmed their experience on the iconic rock face in Yosemite. This video is there result of their efforts, taking us to the mountain with them, as they make their ascent. It features some dizzying shots of the spectacular landscapes that surround El Cap, as well as some impressive images of their climb. If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to go up the most well known rock climbing wall in the world, this will give you an idea.
