Views: 1024 11/13/2015

- El Capitan is a 3,000-foot (910 m) vertical rock formation in Yosemite National Park, located on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. It is one of the world’s favorite challenges for rock climbers.
The formation was named “El Capitan” by the Mariposa Battalion when it explored the valley in 1851. El Capitan (“the captain”, “the chief”) was taken to be a loose Spanish translation of the local Native American name for the cliff, variously transcribed as “To-to-kon oo-lah” or “To-tock-ah-noo-lah”.
