[VIDEO] Tommy Caldwell und Kevin Jorgeson versuchen sich am El Capitan – Teil 1

Tommy Caldwell und Kevin Jorgeson verbrachten nahezu zwei Monate am El Capitan im Yosemite Valley, Kalifornien, um die wahrscheinlich schwierigste freie Kletterei an einem Big Wall zu meistern. Definitiv kein Film für Leute mit Höhenangst...

When is a rock climb too hard, the holds too small, the cracks too thin? Black Diamond athletes Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson pushed those physical and mental boundaries to the limit this past fall when they spent nearly two months attempting to free a line on El Capitan's southeast face, a 900-meter route (linking up sections of the Dawn Wall and Mescalito) that is likely the hardest big wall free climb in the world, mind-bogglingly stacked with numerous 5.14 pitches.
