El Capitan, CA Topograph
EL CAPTIAN 3D TOPOGRAPHICAL MODEL
"The Captain" or "The Chief" is a sheer granite monolith soaring 3,000 feet high. The magnificent spectacle has been drawing visitors and adventure seekers to Yosemite since the 1850s, but those visitors were long preceded by the Ahwahneechee Indians indigenous to the area. Since the first person to scale El Cap in 1958, many climbers have risked it all to make it to the summit. A highly detailed view of the perilous rock face is displayed in this topographical model.

Bought this as a gift and was extremely pleased with both the originality and the quality of the product. Shipped very quickly, too.
Had this delivered to me to send to my son as part of a Christmas package.
He climbed Mt Elbert last summer. Started a new job out of state. Thought this would be a good thing for him to have on his desk.
Got to say: The piece is fantastic.
Fit, feel, general look are far better than I expected.
Based on the pictures I expected 'good quality' This is well beyond that.
As he climbs different peaks in the catalog, I'll be buying another one. Hopefully, he'll have a full collection in the next five to ten years. Well, the US peaks. He can buy his own Everest.
This is an awesome gift! Can’t wait to collect more as I scale more mountains! This did cover the top half of the mountain, not the whole mountain. Just something to keep in mind! But still an awesome job, nice and solid!
Great purchase on several occasions.
3 units for me. 3 more for Christmas presents.
Outstanding material and quality.
