El Capitan is an enormous granite monolith measuring 3000ft/ 923m from the valley floor. El Capitan (the Chief in Spanish) is one of the largest pieces of uncut granite in world and is the “holy grail” for big wall rock climbers. During the Summer months you can usually spot teams of climbers attempting to scale this massive rock. El Capitan is best seen from the valley floor.
You’ll see El Capitan on ANY of our Yosemite tours, ranging from a single Yosemite Day Tour to a 2-Day Hotel Experience or a 3-Day Escape Camping Tour!
