Video: Emily Harrington Climbs El Capitan's Golden Gate Route

El Capitan is arguably the most iconic climbing wall in the entire world, drawing in the best rock climbers from across the globe. That includes Emily Harrington, who visited Yosemite National Park to attempt the difficult Golden Gate route, which features a rating of 5.13 VI. It took her six days to complete the 40 pitches, but eventually she conquered the route. You can follow her efforts in the video below, which gives us an amazing look at the rock face, and the spectacular valley below.

This is the most intimate portrayal of hard rock climbing I have seen. The full honest picture of vulnerable humans on the cutting edge of "the possible". Respect and congratulations to Emily and the team. Brilliant camera work and editing. This is an outstanding climb and a superb film.
