This time-lapse sped up video of the record-setting El Capitan climb last fall is simply stunning. For a climb that takes most climbers 3 to 4 days, this is an almost superhuman effort. Well worth a watch, just sit back at marvel at these guys.

On a cold, misty morning in late October 2017, after 11 previous attempts, Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds broke the standing speed record on The Nose (formerly held by Alex Honnold and Hans Florine) with an unbelievable new time of 2 hours, 19 minutes, and 44 seconds.

Watching this as it happened was one of the more incredible spectacles I’ve ever witnessed; an amazing display of superhuman mastery, unlike anything I’ve seen before…
