Rachel & Eddie El Cap Pictures

Rachel & Eddie El Cap Pictures

Short on words, long on pictures, here is a visual summary of Rachel & Eddie’s trip up the Big Stone.  They got to spend their first night on El Cap Tower with Ivo Ninov and Eric Pearlman who were in position to film the speed record.  Included in the gallery are a couple of pictures (#’s 6, 7 and 8) of Hans Florine and Yuji Hirayama on the aforementioned record setting ascent of The Nose.  Make sure to hover your mouse over the expanded images to see the captions…

To expand your Nose knowledge, check out this virtual pitch by pitch recap by the Chossmonkey from his recent Nose In A Day ascent.  It is really cool to read if you ever wondered how short fixing works, what the King Swing is like and what exactly the Glowering Spot is.

    Eddie, stealing my Squirrel Fishing beta without citing me? Plagerist! I have photographic proof with Chad in the photos! (PS it works better if you loop the webbing over a tree branch)

    PS– Nice work on the Nose! When are you going to go do Heaven?

    we used the branch as a pulley in our 2nd generation efforts. 3rd generation will no doubt use protraxion and static line in addition to heavily duct-tape reinforced paper bag. we learn.

    ps. the babies don’t freak out as much as the big ‘uns.

    Rachel,
    I had a “safety break” before we left the crag and I totally spaced putting my card on your window. Ifigured you would just think I was an ass. i have been e-stalking you to no avail until now.This has been difficult as I don’t really know your last name. So just email your number because I would love to climb while I am here if you are in the area. [email protected]
