After spending 19 days on the wall, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson reached the summit of El Cap for their historic first free ascent of the Dawn Wall on January 14, 2015.

I am always thinking about the kind of dad I want to be. I know that the best way to teach is to show by example. For me the Dawn Wall is the perfect venue for some of the most important values I want to show Fitz. Optimism, perseverance, dedication and the importance of dreaming big. But leaving Becca and Fitz at home is never easy. I love you guys!
