A few days ago a couple of rock climbers ascended the most difficult route up the face of the famous El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. This infamous granite face beauty is an incredible presence but not one I could ever imagine climbing. They took 19 days to do it, actually sleeping on the face of the cliff, hundreds of feet off the ground. A spectacular feat in a spectacular setting.
