A Free Ascent of the World’s Most Famous Rock Climb

In 2014, Jorg Verhoeven became the fourth climber to send The Nose. Watch in a newly released film

In October 2014, Jorg Verhoeven spent 30 days in Yosemite with one goal in mind, to make a free ascent of The Nose 5.14 on El Capitan, arguably the world’s most famous climb.

Louder Than 11, the production company that filmed his ascent, has just released a short film about the history climb. Join Verhoeven as he explains why this route is so hard, what keeps people from climbing this iconic route free, and what he personally invested into his remarkable ascent.

Tommy Caldwell and Lynn Hill help narrate this incredible story of determination and perseverance that ultimately leads to Verhoeven becoming the fourth climber to free The Nose. For a complete history of climbers projecting and freeing The Nose, visit here.
