The Nose is one of the most emblematic routes in El Capitan and, perhaps, the most popular big-wall route in the world. Its first ascent was done by the mythical party Warren Harding, Wayne Merry and George Whitmore in 1958, for which they spent a total of 47 days.

Nowadays this route is climbed by numerous parties every day. The current speed record for this spectacular route is set in just under 2 hours (1:58:07 by Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold).
