I was wondering just exactly how high el capitan is..

I tried searching but all I find is route beta etc etc. but they NEVER give the height of any of the bigwall routes anywhere..

It's about a ten second delay to El Cap towers from the top...

As those numbers are probably true, I don't think that's what he was talking about.

The Nose route doesn't go anywhere near the summit of El Capitan. In fact, none of the climbing routes go all the way to the top. They end on the rim, which is several hundred feet below the dome-like summit.

Why did this get moved to aid. The nose goes free! And Its a general question.

All I know is it a long route!!!
