Caldwell: Last night we found a new sequence around the move that shut me down for the last 2 years!!! THIS COULD BE HUGE!!

I'd rather follow this project on Supertopo than the fecking election, of which I've had a bellyfull.

Anyone in the Valley with other updates? I've been cruising the Eastside these past few weeks and so haven't been around.

Is he really up there again?

I was getting afraid that he would get old and full of tendonitis before he solved it.

Tommy amazes me. I have aided some of that stuff, and how it goes free is beyond my comprehension.

Did he use a bolt as a foothold at about 2:20 in part 2?
Me thinks so.

So KJ is off the project? Maybe once Seigrist gets the route more dialed they could bring KJ back into the mix and try and redpoint it as a team of three. Maybe even drag along a fourth person as a subbie handling all the logistical wall stuff.

Totally rad. Anyone who says the younger generations don't have it going on is a codger.

Is it the Dawn Wall Project or Mescalito project or mescadawn? or ?? I'm confused

It was cold on Fri night and Sat, warmed up starting on Sunday. We saw someone jugging lines above the twin portaledges at some point yesterday. Lots of lines fixed in all kinds of directions up there.

Must have been cold up there during the snap.

Some tourist comes into the SAR yard Sunday and tells me he wants to make a report on some climbers on El Cap in trouble.

He says they haven't moved and the tents are hanging up there.

I tell him it's Tommy's stuff.

"Are they all right?" he asks.

I said NO!.

"Why?"

"Anyone who pitches his tent way up there must be not in his right mind". ...

He then left.

Damnit it Werner, you could have at least respected the touron's intent to be helpful, fish out of water as he was.

Will there be time for a ground to summit push? Seems like they are getting close to a possible team free ascent where at least one guy leads every pitch... It would be cool to see this go down. Glad to see they are still at it, still psyched, and still having fun.
