Photo of Beverly Johnson, the first woman to climb the face of Yosemite's 3,000-foot El Capitan, by Sibylle Hetchel, 1978 via Rock Rip Roll.

"Rocks make no compromise one's sex. Rock climbing is not like some sports, where it is made easier for women; or sports like, say, softball, which is only baseball for soft people. On a rock, everything is equal." -Beverly Johnson
