A Different Level of Climbing

From time to time, I mention Mark and Janelle Smiley, a couple from Colorado that are attempting to become the first people to climb all 50 climbs in the classic climber’s tome 50 Classic Climbs of North America.  If you like, you can follow their exploits at the Committed website.  For each climb, they produce a very nice, HD video of the experience.

The Smileys recently released the video they produced while climbing The Nose on El Capitan.  This is probably the most well-known climb in North America, and the video is awesome.  Watch and be amazed; this is a whole different level of climbing.  For best results, maximize the video to full-screen.
