Pitons of Steel

This climber was up very high. I had to use my camera as a spotter because I couldn't see him with my eyes. Shot with a 300mm and 2X converter, this is as close as I could get with my gear. I didn't crop much because I wanted to show the scope of the climb. The climb takes several days, and he should be in every El Capitan shot I took this October trip.
