Sixty years ago today, Warren Harding, Wayne Merry, and George Whitmore (pictured) topped out as the first ascent of El Capitan. George is also a veteran of the Air Force so it was a double honor to interview him and release the latest show today on Veterans Day on the yosemitecanopeaches.com podcast. I’ll never forget the day I got to follow this Yosemite climbing legend to the Nose of El Capitan while listening to his stories of that epic climb. Please go follow my Yosemite Can O Peaches 🍑 account on Instagram and Facebook and give a listen to this show which I feel is the most meaningful work I’ve done to this date. You can also DM me if you’d like to sit down for an interview. I am eternally grateful to George and cherished every moment with this legend. Please help support my Yosemite Peaches 🍑 Project.
