Tommy Caldwell in Aktion
|The rumours started flying several days ago at Supertopo.com
that Beth Rodden and Tommy Caldwell had climbed El Cap's Free Nose. It
was slipped out in a post by Werner Braun (Mr. Astroman) on the
Supertopo forums. Now it's official…..well, as posted by Chris
McNamara (Mr. Supertopo himself) via Hans Florine (Mr. El Cap speed
ascent guru). The pair did a 'team free' ascent, each leading about
half the pitches, with Caldwell leading the crux “Changing Corners'
pitch (5.14a) and Rodden doing the stopper 'Great Roof' pitch (5.13c).
The debate will no doubt rage about
And this just in from Chris McNamara as of Oct 17th 9.00pm USA ET, “right now tommy is on the wall trying to climb it free in a day..”
