El Capitan is a natural monument that stands 7,569 feet in Yosemite National Park. It’s sheer cliff is so daunting that only in 1958 did humans begin climbing the slick granite rock. Sadly, this summer a climber was killed on El Capitan.
But all of the danger and seemingly impossible obstacles did not stop Steve Wampler from trying to make it to the top. His story is a testament to the human spirit.
