Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds practically flew up The Nose route on El Capitan back in October, 2017, setting a speed record for the 3,000-ft climb with a nearly unthinkable time of 2 hours and 19 minutes. Average climbers take several days to make the same ascent, just for reference. This video captures their push up the wall, the timelapse making the climbers appear almost like flies flitting around the sheer rock face. An amazing look at a nearly unbelievable feat.
