Vid: Dawn Wall Day One

Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson have started their final attempt of the year to free The Dawn Wall.

For years, Caldwell has been attempting the Dawn Wall. The route links sections of the Dawn Wall and Mescalito and is likely the hardest attempted big wall free climb in the world.

After three days, they have climb to the top of pitch 10. Renowned soloist Alex Honnold join them for the day.

Here is a video from the team’s first day on the wall.
