Lurking Fear on El Capitan

Our group, Lorna Illingworth, Madaleine Sorkin and Emily Stifler, met this week in Yosemite. We spent three days climbing a route called Lurking Fear on the left side of El Capitan. Two nights, three girls, one tippy portaledge. We free climbed as much as possible and had a blast, despite unpleasant hauling.

We’re psyched for our upcoming trip to the Cirque of the Unclimbables, and plan to post updates, photos and information on this blog.


About Emily Stifler

I grew up in Vermont and live in Bozeman, Montana. I love topography: mountains, rocks, weather and people.
