Dawn Wall: The Final Push
After nearly three weeks on El Capitan, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson are two-thirds up the Dawn Wall.
The first 20 pitches of the Dawn Wall are behind the now-famous El Cap climbers, which North American media is trying to understand.
Kevin Jorgeson finished pitches 18,19, and 20 on Jan. 12 to catch up to Caldwell on Wino Tower.
Tom Evans reported, ” I arrived in the meadow in mid morning and found that the media had arrived in force. ABC, CBS, NBC, ABC, Good Morning America and countless newspapers have staked their claims in the El Cap meadow and passer-by’s venturing too close, were snagged for interviews.”
Jorgeson and Caldwell are within a dozen pitches of making history. Only 12 more pitches of 5.12 and 5.13 rise between Wino Tower and the top of El Cap. If all goes well, they could be back on terra firma in a week.
