El Capitan - Yosemite National Park

El Capitan is no doubt the most famous rock climbing site in the world. This photo was taken during late morning light and is therefore in very sharp focus. "El Cap" has two main faces, the Southwest (on the left when looking directly at the wall) and the Southeast. Between the two faces juts a massive prow. While today there are numerous established routes on both faces, the most popular and historically famous route is The Nose, which follows the massive prow.
