    Still can’t believe someone free climbed this.

    Insane indeed. When the Huber-Buam (brothers) tried their speed record, they didn’t freeclimb this. Well, good for them, they are still alive. I guess you can either go free or for speed – or not at all like myself.

    Are there some folks standing at the top?

    No, those look like trees looking at the full size image.

    El Capitan looks particularly imposing in your rendering.  Excellent.

    Good stuff, Paul. I agree: the idea of climbing that doesn’t make sense.
