On Saturday, November 9, David Allfrey and Alex Honnold broke yet another Yosemite Valley record, accompanying the solo record Cheyne Lempe set on the Salathé Wall during the same week.  Allfrey and Honnold made the first one-day ascent of Excalibur (A3 5.8) on El Capitan in 16 hours, 10 minutes, breaking the 1998 record of 39 hours, 1 minute set by Willie Benegas, Steve Schneider, and Andres Zegers. The ascent was Honnold's fifth record and Allfrey's eighth speed record.
