El Capitan - Freerider onsight

Cédric Lachat and Chloé Graftiaux in 3 days

04 October 2009   After Bishop, the bouldering paradise in the middle of the desert, Chloé Graftiaux and Cédric Lachat left back for Yosemite Park to attempt to free climb the « Freerider » : an almost 4000 feet high route.   After 3 days climbing, the goal is reached for Cédric but not for Chloé who didn’t manage to pass 2 pitches : she was exhausted and the presence of another roped party just up to them prevented her from passing her route.   As most French climber, she had to focus a lot for passing the several offwidths and cracks, that’s a pretty different climbing than back home.   «…an unusual type of climbing for us.» declared Chloé on her blog.   But the Millet climber keeps the smile : She need to get used to this climbing and for a first experience in the Yoz, the results are not bad.   Source: millet usa      ms
