The Valley in Gigapixel Glory
Check out the Valley in zoomable gigapixel glory at www.xrez.com
If you are looking to climb a route on El Capitan or Half Dome you can scope the whole route from the comfort of your home.
Made by a consortium of digital artists, these photos are outstanding. Check out the haul bags on El Cap (if you can find them), a party topping out on Zodiac and another on the Teflon corner pitch of the Salathe.
According to Eric Hanson, one of the guys who shot this stuff they are planning on re-shooting El Cap at higher resolution and in the summer when it is covered with parties. So keep checking in on this project.
