Mayan Smith-Gobat Bathangs off El Capitan

This palm-sweat­ing video fea­tur­ing New Zealand rock climber Mayan Smith-Gob­at has been rais­ing eye­brows on the inter­net. Jump to the 2:55 mark to see what it’s like to bat-hang 2,500ft off the deck. Com­plet­ing a free ascent of the Salathé wall on Yosemite Val­ley’s largest chunk of stone, El Cap­i­tan, Smith-Gob­at joins an elite few and becomes only one of two women to unlock the des­per­ate climb­ing on the gor­geous, exposed headwall.
