Golden Gate - Emily Harrington Free Climbing in Yosemite, California

She’s been trad climbing for only three years, but The North Face & Petzl Athlete, Emily Harrington didn’t let that sway her from the magnetic pull of El Capitan’s ‘Golden Gate’ (5.13 VI). 6 days and 40 pitches later, she stood on the summit with broken skin, aching muscles and a smile that stretched across Yosemite Valley. Here Emily shows us that it’s just as much about the journey as it is the destination.
