The El Cap Report
The spring season has brought a few storms but also a few glorious days of sunshine. In the dry spells there has been a lot of activity on Yosemite's El Capitan. Tom Evans, a long time climber and Yosemite local, has spent the past 5 years watching the climbers on El Cap from his stance at the bridge by the meadow.

The El Cap reports are a great way to check on the weather for the Valley, particularly the big stone. It's also nice to know what routes are seeing the most traffic and what condition they are in if you're going to make a weekend trip up the Zodiac, climb the Nose in a Day, or just head out for a fun day of climbing at the base of El Cap.

Tom has all of the El Cap reports back logged. There's a great history of people climbing on El Cap, the successes and failures, the free and aid attempts, and everything in between. If you can't get enough of El Cap- check out The El Cap Report
