First climbed in 1970 by Scott Davis and Chuck Kroger, the Heart Route follows an obvious line through the middle of El Cap's SW face. The free climbing follows most of the original route, with a few variations. The climbing is varied, with tedious slabs down low, and steep enduro pitches above the heart. The "V10" rating is for a dyno on the sixth pitch.


Start on Sacherer Cracker, but keep climbing until you get to a big tree on the top.
