Huber Brothers Roast El Cap in Under 2 Hours!

The Huber brothers, Alexander and Thomas, have climbed El Capitan in less than two hours. During five separate climbs of the 16-pitch Zodiac route on the right side of the Yosemite monolith, the two Germans systematically hacked time off their existing speed record of 2 hours 31 minutes 20 seconds. On their final go, they went nearly 9 minutes under 2 hours to the cheers of a large crowd of climbers gathered in El Cap Meadow below the cliff.
