Watch Eline Le Menestrel and Nina Caprez climb The Nose on El Cap for Le Menestrel’s first big wall.
Not only that, but Caprez tries to free the 1,000-metre 5.14. Despite coming up short, this film should be an example of how to make great climbing videos. Simple and fun.
Eline is the daughter of the great Marc le Menestrel who was a big part of the development of European climbing in the 1980s.
Guiding my “little sister” @eline_lemenestrel during 3 days on the Nose was by far the best finish of my trip to Yosemite. Even though I’ve not been able to free climb the route this year, it has been such a huge pleasure teaching her everything about cracks and big wall climbing. I had soooo much fun watching her giving her real best. Huge congrats to everyone pushing the limits on el cap, it’s such a huge commitment! #yosemiteforever #bigwall @petzl_official @arcteryx @scarpaspa @msr_gear @lyofood @hard.bar @hydroflask
