El Capitan, End All Route. Aside from routes mentioned elsewhere in this Journal, other fine routes were made in the Yosemite. These included a new route on El Capitan to the right of the Wall of Early Morning Light made in nine days with much difficult nailing but only 85 bolts, many at belay points. The climbers were Charlie Porter, Chris Nelson and the Canadians Hugh Burton and Steve Sutton. Great emphasis was also placed on shorter, very difficult climbs elsewhere in the Valley.
