The two American climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson finisched, the night to today, thursday 19th, the historic free climb of Dawn Wall on El Capitán in Yosemite national park.

They started the climb on the 27th of December and have spent the time since on the wall.

Tommy and Kevin have planned and prepared the climb for 7 (!) years. The route, topping at 5.14+, is considered one of, if not THE, hardest in the world. Hats off.
