Girl, 10, Climbs Yosemite's El Capitan

According to CNN, Selah Schneiter may have just became the youngest person in history to climb the park's 3,000-foot-high rock formation, reaching the summit on June 12, 2019.

Aided by her father and a family friend, the trio spent five days in Yosemite Valley using a rope climbing technique known as jumaring to tackle a famously steep route known as the Nose.

Schneiter comes from a family of hikers who developed a special connection to Yosemite's trails. Her father, Mike, is a climbing instructor, and claims to have fallen in love with Schneiter's mother, Joy, while hiking in Yosemite years prior.
