Over the past few days, there has been a lot of excitement on the Dawn Wall in Yosemite valley, CA. According to sources on the ground, Tommy Cadwell sent the ‘Loop Pitch’ last night, which is a high point for the team. Both Kevin and Tommy are going for a team ascent but I am sure they both want to complete the harder pitches on the wall. From what I can tell, Tommy has sent both pitch 15 and 16 so far and Kevin had trouble of pitch 15 because of a few skin issues. Instead of down climbing, Kevin has also decided to stick with the dyno beta for what people are calling the loop pitch! Good luck today Kevin!
The weather in the valley looks like it is going to hold for the next week with highest temperatures over the next three days.
