    The Dawn Wall Goes Free!

    1/14/15 - At 3:30 p.m. pacific time, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson summited El Capitan, completing their years-long quest to free climb the Dawn Wall. They spent 19 days on the wall. This has been called the hardest big wall free climb to date, and is truly a historic achievement that may not be repeated for years to come. Read More

  • 1/13/15 - Just a few days ago Kevin Jorgeson's success on the Dawn Wall seemed questionable. He'd been stuck on pitch 15 for seven days. His finger skin was shredded. It seemed like he may have hit his high point. Since then, Jorgeson has erased any doubts about his ability to get to the top of the 3,000-foot face. He fired off pitch 15, went on to stick the notorious dyno on pitch 16, and then kept his momentum and caught up to partner Tommy Caldwell on Wino Tower at pitch 20 in a matter of days. This puts all of the 5.14 and 5.13 pitches behind the team, besides one 5.13a boulder problem nears the top of the wall. The majority of the remaining pitches are 5.11 and 5.12, all relatively easy compared to what the duo has already accomplished. Read More
