Not many people get to climb up the wall of El Capitan, the 3,000 ft. rock formation in Yosemite National Park.
But with Google’s new vertical Street View, anyone can enjoy its stunning views, right at home.
This is 'The Nose,' one of the most famous walls of El Capitan. Google partnered with three world-renowned rock climbers, Lynn Hill, Alex Honnold, and Tommy Caldwell, for this project.
Its new vertical Street View allows users to literally click their way up El Capitan, all the way to the top, which is more than 3,000 ft high.
'Doing anything thousands of feet high on a sheer granite face is complicated, but everyone up there had spent years of their lives on a rope and knew exactly what they were doing,' Caldwell wrote in a blog post.
That's Alex Honnard. He climbs mostly 'free solo,' meaning he only uses his hands and feet. In fact, he's best known for climbing rock walls with no ropes to protect him if he falls.
This is Honnold pulling a trick called a 'chimney technique,' where he uses his entire body to climb up the wall, 1,400 ft above the ground.
This place is called the 'Great Roof,' which is one of the most difficult parts of the entire route. You have to dip your fingers into the tiny crack to get through.
That's Honnold 2,000 feet above ground. He's holding onto what's called the 'Pancake Flake,' a granite flake as thin as a pancake.
When it gets too difficult to 'free solo,' Honnold grabs onto pieces of nylon left behind by other climbers. This is near the top, about 3,000 ft above ground.
