El Capitan is the largest exposed-granite monolith in the world and among the most popular rock-climbing destinations in the US. Rising 3,593 feet (1095 meters) above Yosemite Valley, El Capitan was once considered impossible to climb. However, since Warren Harding first conquered the "nose" in 1958, El Capitan has become the standard for big-wall climbing.

"Had not been to Yosemite in almost 40 years. With just a week in the Bay Area only had a day to spar. The train trip in the morning was great sightseeing ( and people seeing too). Bus from Merced to the Park was comfortable and provided a lot of "the view". Should have stayed overnight! That would have meant a full day in the park. Returning the same day in the dark made for a long day. Don't recommend for families , unless you overnight. Great experience - will do again when time allows."..."
