After his historic first free ascent of the Dawn Wall, Kevin Jorgeson wanted a project outside of the limelight. He found it on Higher Cathedral Spire. Jorgeson spent more than 50 days on the route, spread over two and a half years, before completing Blue Collar (5.13d), leading all the pitches in a one-day push.
