El Capitan emerges from a snowsquall at sunset. El Capitan (Spanish for The Captain, The Chief) is a vertical rock formation in Yosemite National Park, located on the north side of Yosemite Valley, near its western end. The granite monolith extends about 3,000 feet (900 m) from base to summit along its tallest face, and is a popular location for rock climbers and BASE jumpers.
