Selah Schneiter and her father spent five days climbing the Nose only to find when they reached the top that Selah had set a record
Ascending El Capitan, a rock formation rising 3,000ft above Yosemite national park, is a daunting task for the most experienced climbers. Selah Schneiter, 10, scaled it before she entered fifth grade.
Selah became the youngest person known to have achieved the feat on 12 June.
Selah was no stranger to El Capitan: the site, her father said, was in her blood. Mike, a climbing guide, brought his daughter there when she was two months old though she wasnt quite ready to make the ascent.
