Free climbing on El Capitan (Freerider 5.13a, 30 pitches)
Tristan and I spent 6 days vertical camping on the Captain with the goal to free climb the Freerider. An incredible 6 days that won't soon be forgotten. Although big walling is difficult and can be stressful, the goal is always to enjoy it as much as possible - Lots of raggae and fruit snacks certainly help.
We free climbed the vast majority of the climb, but 18 inches on the Boulder problem/Teflon corner sealed our fate as an *almost* free ascent. After this, one short section on the Enduro corner and a move on the Traverse pitch caused falls and we didn't have the fire to stay up late a 4th night in a row to get a slightly better result. Lessons were learned and great times were had. Also got to spend a couple of days and nights with Tyler and Peter which always adds to an already great time.
