You Can Now Climb Yosemite’s Famous El Capitan on Google Maps


On June 24, 2015, Google launched their first-ever vertical Street View, giving you the opportunity to climb 3,000 feet up the world’s most famous rock wall: Yosemite’s El Capitan.

To bring this new imagery, Google partnered with legendary climbers Lynn Hill, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell. Check out the incredible behind-the-scenes video below.
