Tommy Caldwell finally frees one of the crux pitches on the Dawn Wall, this is said to go at about 9A/5.14d, and Tommy has been able to redpoint the route.
This is even more impressive considering it's mid-winter in Yosemite and that Tommy has recently come back from a serious injury. Stay tuned for more updates from the wall.
In other news, we have found out that a new single-man team (we know, bit of a contradiction of terms) is joining the hunt for the first ascent of Nanga Parbat in winter. His name is Daniele Nardi and he is from Italy. To follow his attempt, go to www.danielenardi.org
