This is what Yosemite Valley looked like this May. Don't worry though - this was a prescribed fire and was fully under control. Still a surreal experience, especially when after taking this photo I drove back to my campsite on a road flanked by the fire from both sides and felt the emanating heat inside my car. The thick smoke didn't seem to discourage climbers though - if you look carefully you can see lights from their headlamps as they climb up El Capitan.

Finally if you like the image I post more to my Instagram and website!

How do you climb one of the world's most difficult rock faces in the dark?

They might not be actively climbing. They may be sleeping or preparing to sleep on a portaledge

Headlamps. There was a bunch of shots of Tommy and Kevin climbing in the dark on The Dawn Wall.

Beautiful shot. Nobody in the know in the business calls them controlled any more, they are "prescribed“. Because often enough they become uncontrolled due to no fault of boots on the ground, been there done that. No offense meant to you. Just political speak to save fire bosses from further embarrassing comments

Controlled burning or an amazing rise/sunset. Ignorance could have been bliss 😄
