North America, United States, California, Yosemite Valley, El Capitan, Dihedral Wall Free Ascent

El Capitan, Dihedral Wall free ascent. In May, adding to his phenomenal list of El Capitan free routes, Tommy Caldwell freed the incredibly sustained Dihedral Wall (26 pitches, VI 5.14a), perhaps the most difficult free route on El Capitan. See Caldwell’s feature on big-wall free climbing, earlier in this journal.
