Yosemite Speed Climbing

Rock And Ice have reported that Dean Potter and Tim O´Neill recently climbed Regular Route on Half Dome – VI 5.9 A1, The South Face of Maount Watkins – VI 5.9 A3, and The Nose on El Capitan – VI 5.9 A2……in a day! Climbing together, sometimes with only the belay between them, they climbed a staggering 80 pitches, comprising 7,000 feet of height gain!
