Dawn Wall Day 6 Video: Crux Pitch Goes Down


Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson both free-climbed pitch 14 of the Dawn Wall on January 1, their sixth day of this winter's push on El Capitan. The 5.14+ pitch, which Caldwell first free-climbed in November, is the hardest lead on the wall. Jorgeson had never redpointed it before his New Year's Day send. Here's the Adidas-backed video, with footage and shots from the wall and the Valley floor.
