I can't imagine how anyone visiting Yosemite NP would miss this impressive structure. Bring your binoculars and look for mountain climbers. Impressive, majestic, un capitan de verdad!

El Capitan is absolutely majestic. We also were able to see mountain climbers attempting their climbs. It is breathtaking and beautiful. The best of Yosemite.

Incredible to see if you are lucky enough to be in Yosemite National Park. Beautiful with lots of opportunities to pull over and take photos.

This is a huge rock! Don't know how people can climb it, because it's very steep. Makes you realize that the forces of nature can be very powerful to create such a thing! Awe inspriing!
