Hans Florine's On The Nose

But few people on this planet know its most famous route—The Nose—as well as Hans, himself. A man so utterly infatuated by every crack and crevice of that aesthetic line that he has devoted more of his time (or more accurately, time shaving off time) on that route than any other climber on this planet. With over 101 ascents of that route and over 161 on El Capitan itself, Hans has unquestionably carved an indelible mark on the history of Yosemite climbing.
