FRI NIGHT VID: Emily Harrington on Golden Gate

Earlier this year, US climber Emily Harrington boldly listed her goals and ambitions for 2015: to reach the finals of the US Sport Climbing Nationals, complete an 8b+ sport project, free climb Golden Gate (5.13b) on El Capitan and summit Makalu (8463m) without oxygen.

Emily recently completed one of these goals by free climbing Golden Gate. Having learned to trad climb just three years ago, Emily's ascent is all the more impressive. 

This fantastic video by Jon Glassberg and Louder Than Eleven Productions follows her journey up the route, featuring plenty of emotion and the inevitable El Cap trio of blood, sweat and tears.
