CLIMB EL CAPITAN WITH GOOGLE EARTH
In fact, similar systems are used for months to map routes for trekking and hiking, as leading to Everest base camp, or even have adapted over a couple of boats making the descent in rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Although the main challenge lay in the fact that the route was first upright once instead of horizontal.
The project of El Capitan for Google Maps is composed of two parts. On the one hand, in the 23 panoramic wall, Google chamber was fixed with a tripod to the wall. Moving the mouse over these panoramas, you can see Lynn Hill, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell climbing at some points.
The second part of the project is the full escalation of the nose. Alex Honnold's back, who bore a camera timer that would automatically performing snapshots every few meters was used to travel around the rocky prow forming the nose. Actually, it was a combination of six chambers, with a total weight of less than 4.5 kg.
