The Nose, on the prow of El Capitan, is one of rock climbing’s most iconic routes, in the heart of Yosemite Valley. First climbed by Warren Harding’s team in 1958, then climbed “clean” by Royal Robbins’ team in 1960, The Nose is 2952 feet of inspiration and challenge for climbers across the world.

This winter, The Crag is inviting you to climb El Cap, without the cost of a single plane ticket!
