Video: First Ascent of High Times in Tuolumne Meadows

Everyone know that Yosemite National Park is one of the greatest rock climbing destinations in the entire world, but we're reminded of that fact in this five minute video which follows climber/photographer Ben Ditto as he completes the first ascent of a route called High Times (5.13b) in Tuolumne Meadows. The climb took place on Drug Dome and required ten days to complete, and as you'll see, it was no walk in the park. Of course, the epic Yosemite scenery is also on display with some great shots of region.

Whenever he gets to a tough spot there is, magically a bolt ahead of him where he clips in. Who put these bolts in there? Looks like a pre-prepared route, not a first ascend. Hans Baer
