Babsi and Jacopo’s Epic Send of Zodiac (5.13d) on El CapWednesday, July 19, 2017
In the beginning, I just wanted to see Yosemite— the climbing mecca with so much historical background.
I had no specific goal in mind.
But when I stood in front of the Big Stone for the first time … I was overwhelmed.
I think that El Cap attracts every single climber.
It doesn’t matter which style of climbing you like the most.
I was focused on bouldering for a very long time, and I couldn’t imagine that one day I would end up on a big wall in Yosemite.
But I just wanted to try and see how far I could get.
The challenge, the progress and the possibility that there could be a way to bring that big puzzle together … that’s what makes the whole experience of climbing in Yosemite so exciting.
