High-speed climb to the mountain El-Captain along the vertical route

In October 2017, rock climbers Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds broke the record for a high-speed climb to Mount El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, one of the largest monolithic mountain peaks in North America.

Climbing climbers took 2 hours, 19 minutes and 44 seconds to climb, and it became a material for the seven-minute time-slot, introduced in April 2018.

The vertical route The Nose was first passed in 1958. In 1975, a time record was recorded – then the ascent took 17 hours and 45 minutes.
