Mountain Cabin / One-Room-House

Mountain Cabin
Mountain Cabin

Yosemite Nationalpark: breathtaking nature, especially the amazing granite cliff. This is El Capitan, a 1000 m high monolith and Eldorado for climbers. Climbing this cliff takes hours or even days but offers a great view over the valley. This one-room-house is settled in this ambience. It is a stylized mountain cabin but turned by 90 degrees. So the vertical granite wall becomes an element of the house. It is a puristic wooden building which protects the climber from weather and offers the chance to rest after a strenuous day of climbing. But even when you are in the building the cliff is still close. Climbing home – Feel free – Enjoy nature!
