Our old friend Boris Egorov returned to the team of coaches of the 7 Summits Club. As the record-holder of Russia, and maybe Europe's, speed climbing on El Capitan's Nose route, he joined the training of the team preparing for Yosemite climbing.
Boris Egorov: Last weekend we held the second cycle of training before climbing on El Capitan.
Climbing technique, high-speed races on the wall, practicing in belay skills and even a little exercise with ice tools. The guys are training hard for the ascent.
Just 2 weeks ago, we showed different ways to climb up the rope, and last weekend they, with ease, climbed 100 meters, dragging the load!
