Yosemite National Park is home to some of the most iconic climbing routes in the world, but none are as well known as The Nose on El Capitan, a 30-pitch, 5.14 rated climb that all others are compared to. Last October, climber Jorg Verhoeven went to Yosemite and spent 30 days there making a free ascent of The Nose – something that had only been done a handful of times in the previous couple of decades. This short film – narrated by Tommy Caldwell and Lynn Hill – takes us on that quest. The beautiful video is 25 minutes in length, so get settled in for this one. It is well worth the time, as it takes a long look at one of the truly great climbing spots in the entire world.
