Date Shot
Even in the dead of winter, it was incredibly hot during the day on the Dawn Wall of El Capitan. The wall acted like a giant solar collector, which is why the climbers waiting till dusk or even night, when temperatures dropped to 30 degrees, to climb. After spending 19 days on the wall, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson reached the summit of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park for their historic first free ascent of the Dawn Wall (VI 5.14d) on January 14, 2015.
