Hans Florine and Yuji Hiriyama broke their own speed record on The Nose, El Capitan in Yosemite by 6 minutes recording a new time of 2:37:05 on Sunday, October 12.

The Nose, which celebrates its 50 anniversary this year, is one of the world’s most famous rock climbs and was first ascended over a five week period by Warren Harding, Wayne Merry and George Whitmore. The first free ascent was carried out by none other than Lynn Hill in 1993 in what is hailed as one of the most significant free climbing achievements ever. The route had to wait a further 12 years for its first repeat, at the hands of the extremely talented American Tommy Caldwell.
