Monkey Business

I've been deep into projects on the side of El Cap, and behind the lens of my camera. I'm excited to share some of my recent experiences. Hold on tight while I finish the editing.

Here is a quick video of my friend Nate and I cutting an extremely loose block off the side of El Cap. Nate and I rapped All 3,000 feet of the captain to work a few of the crux pitches. One notoriously dangerous and difficult is 'the monster offwidth'. Right in the middle of the crack lies a gigantic block, hanging only by a few old slings. We worked together with another team who also rapped the route in order to make sure the base was clear, and we could safely let the block scream down 2,000 feet to the base.
