A woman writes about her speed climb of the Nose of El Cap. It took them slightly longer than one day. They started at night and her photo of the first four pitches is to the left.
She has a few regrets about not climbing slower.
I liked this quote:
"Wall style climbing is underrated. We were too busy getting away from each other speed climbing that we never really got to hang out and have the fun we really could have had. We regret not having a Jetboil, no music blazing dance parties. We regret hauling no beer. These are things you have to sacrifice if you want to go light and fast. Since we weren’t going fast, we should have gone heavier."
