This is the hike up to the base
of El Capitan.
focuses on the climb itself, but getting there, and
getting back are just as difficult (if not more).
To get to the base, if you can't use your legs, you
either get a ride on someone's back, or you walk
on your hands. Generally I try to do as much of everything
myself if I can. So, I wheelbarrowed up to the base
with my wife carrying my legs.
Walking on your hands
like this is so demanding on your hands and
wrists. This is where the value of the FLEXTEND® gloves really show up.
