Climb El Capitan

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I'm interested in climbing El Capitan in 2015 or 2016. It'd be great to find like minded people to train with and ultimately make this happen. I'm planning on going to Joshua tree, Zion, and Yosemite to sharpen my trad/big wall skills before tackling the nose, so even if you aren't interested in El Cap, it'd be cool to have someone else to climb with in any of those places.

    I'd love to build my way up to El Capitan and climb it. I have a long way to go, but if it's in a year or two, I could possibly reach that. I'm also potentially interested in joining the other trips you mentioned depending on the costs and dates.

    Sweet, the more the merrier. So here's what my plan is. I currently work a slope schedule, which allows me to travel for 2 weeks every month. I'll be traveling Europe until the end up summer and then I have to squeeze in a 8 week training class in fall sometime. After that my plans are to hit J-tree, Zion, and Yosemite as much as I can on my time off. Since I realistically understand many people don't have that flexibility, I'll most likely be booking rock guides, doing climbing schools, etc. to build up my skills (I have zero big wall skills). Before the nose, I plan on taking a big walls seminar, and then hiring a guide/finding someone knowledgeable to do an easy big wall climb to dial everything in and make sure I'm prepared for the nose. I'll post when I'm climbing and if you can make it, awesome!

    I just moved up to AK and would love to get more into trad and big wall climbing. Ive been mostly sport climbing and mountaineering lately.

    I climbed the Nose, Salathe and Zodiac quite a few years (decades) ago. I could probably give some advice and my son may be interested.
