Meet the Fastest Woman to Free-Climb El Capitan

Published on November 11, 2020 by

Emily Harrington has made history by being the first woman to free climb Yosemite National Park’s legendary El Capitan cliff face in under 24 hours. With extraordinary skill and bravery, Emily inched her way up the 3,000 foot high cliff, and even rested in a cot dangling hundreds of feet from the ground to rest. Emily suffered a gash on her forehead after falling – luckily, free climbers still use ropes to catch themselves, though they do not aid with climbing.
