El Capitan is a nearly vertical rock face in Yosemite National Park in California. Climbing it is a 3,000-foot journey that has been completed in as short a time as 19 days. That’s by elite climbers. You and I, though can go faster by using Google Street View.
That service, which provides photos to accompany Google Maps, which has explored the oceans, Loch Ness, the Grand Canyon, and the open sands of the Sahara, now takes you straight up El Capitan. It’s a tough, brutal climb, but keep clicking and eventually you’ll reach the summit. You can read more about the journey here.
