Yosemite-El Capitan
Somehow I thought this article was about Apple. I bet the next OS X will be called Sentinel Dome.

Re: vertical
@danielcawrey yes, and maybe they can serve as backgrounds for exercises, to make the fake rock climing and the like more exciting.

Re: vertical
I cannot imagine doing this type of climbing myself – so I find it interesting that these types of experiences are available today via technology. 

With virtual reality set to become a huge consumer product in the coming years, I expect these types of experiences to become more prevalent.
