Google Street View: Now With Rock Walls (Yosemite’s El Capitan)

Alrighty then: Google Street View is getting vertical with rock wall climbs.

“Today we’re launching our first-ever vertical Street View collection, giving you the opportunity to climb 3,000 feet up the world’s most famous rock wall: Yosemite’s El Capitan. To bring you this new imagery, we partnered with legendary climbers Lynn Hill, Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell. Read more about the project from Tommy Caldwell, who completed the world’s hardest climb in Yosemite in January of 2015.”

When you read this blog post make sure you are firmly planted in your chair or at your standing desk – the images can do strange things to your stomach.
