El Capitan Peaches with George Whitmore
On November 12, 1958, after working all through the previous night, Warren Harding and two "good steady fellows" named Wayne Merry and George Whitmore reached the summit at sunrise as the first group to ever climb El Capitan. Today, sixty year later, George shares stories of that first ascent. Join us as Mr. Whitmore recounts all the detailed planning necessary to make the impossible possible on that incredible day.
El Capitan was not George Whitmore's most cherished accomplishments. George dedicated himself to conservation efforts and was instrumental in the protection of the Ansel Adams Wilderness and parts of Sequoia National Park. Hear George's incredible story in this episode.
