Amazing Video!

Well, I can't figure out how to actually post this on my blog, the link below goes to a video of a solo climb of El Capitan, and is really quite amazing. The video quality isn't amazing, but its definitely worth a watch.

I can't see myself ever really getting into mountain climbing since I have a bit of a fear of heights, but it would be so amazing to do something like this. I've always had such a special place in my heart for Yosemite because of all the family trips I've taken there over the years. I can't wait to go back and do some great hikes that I've never been in good enough shape to do before. Specifically, I want to climb to the top of Nevada Falls. Yosemite is such an amazing place and I hope to make visits there over the rest of my life

Nice photos. By the time you've completed that first 50k you should be in awesome shape to complete some of the hikes you want. The problem will be finding someone else who's in good enough shape to join you. ;-)

Happy Friday. See you tomorrow.

Awsome video! I love the look on the guys face when he gets passed about half way up. This makes me wish I had moutains around to climb!
