The Nose: Larcher and Zangerl free on El Capitan!
Another satisfaction from the Yosemite valley24 November 2019
Jacopo Larcher and Barbara Zangerl free ascend the legendary Nose on El Capitan.
Crazy feat for the two strong Jacopo Larcher and Barbara Zangerl who respectively sign the eighth and ninth repetition in free of Nose, on the walls of El Capitan.
The ascent has requested two and a half weeks of work from the team, they begin testing the pitches on 12 November and devoting three days to studying the various lengths. On the 20th Barbara wrote on Instagram that she had solved the Great Roof and shortly thereafter also Jacopo, at that point there was only the Changing Corners missing.
After a day of rest, Larcher and Zangerl left for the attack and concluded their respective repetitions. 25 years after Lynn Hill, Jacopo is also the first Italian to free up this wonderful and historic length.
