Kevin Jorgeson, 30, and Tommy Caldwell, 36 have completed their Dawn Wall free climb in Yosemite, garnering attention and congratulations from many corners of the world. Last week they were halfway up the wall and struggling to make the final push, which they finished yesterday. Here they are on CBS, where they discussed the challenges they faced.
Incidentally, one group who seemed impressed were Politicians:
Feeling inspired by Tommy Caldwell & Kevin Jorgeson, the climbers who conquered El Capitan's #DawnWall in Yosemite. What an accomplishment!— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 15, 2015
