The forecast in Yosemite calls for perfect, clear weather for the next week. It's a perfect time for big wall season. For some climbers that means El Capitan, for some that means climbing a little and than doing El Rapitan, for a lot of climbers it means heading to the meadow for El Napitan. For elite Yosemite climbers, it eans time to race up the Nose again. This is a great video of Sean "Stanley" Leary and Dean Potter racing up the Nose in an unbelievably fast time. Diablo Rock Gym Manager, Hans Florine, who's owned the record a number of times, is training already. Get excited for El Cap Season.
