Lynn Hill Profile

Lynn Hill was the first climber ever to make a free ascent in a single day of
The Nose on Yosemite’s El Cap. She’s one of the best known
female climbers in the world,
and Into Thin Air writer Jon Krakauer once said that “Lynn Hill isn’t just one of the best female
climbers in the world, she is among the greatest rock climbers of all time.” But Hill, who has been climbing rock faces
now for more than 30 years and wrote the book

Climbing Free
 is also a mother and has been taking on other duties over the years. She’s now
serving as an ambasador of sorts for outdoors company Patagonia. The profile talks about Hill’s career and goes into
some interesting depth on her free climb of the nose of El Cap. A good read for climbing buffs.
