Tommy Caldwell reports on Facebook that he has freed the last remaining undone pitch of the Dawn Wall.
“Oh my goodness!!!” posted Caldwell. “After six years I finally sent this beast of a pitch. Inspired by Kevin’s fight to the death near miss.This officially means all the hard individual pitches have been redpointed.”
Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson are now poised to send what will be the hardest big-wall in the world. Last season, Caldwell’s progress on the Dawn Wall nearly ended, first with the government shutdown, then when he dropped a haul-bag that was attached to his harness, ripping a rib off of his sternum.
