A 10-year-old Colorado girl scaled Yosemite National Park’s El Capitan and may have become the youngest person to climb one of the most celebrated and challenging peaks in the world.
Selah Schneiter of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, completed the 3,000-foot climb of the vertical rock formation with the help of her father, Mike Schneiter, and family friend, Mark Regier.
On June 12, Saleh became the youngest person to make it on the treacherous “Nose route” on El Capitan— one of the most challenging and treacherous vertical rock formations in the California national park.
