Day 14 on the Dawn Wall

Today marks 2 weeks of living on El Cap for Tommy and Kevin.  For spending this much time up there, it doesn't seem like it has been too bad.  I'm sure since their focus is dialed in so intensely on this climb there isn't a place they would rather be or are thinking about.

The weather in the Valley this morning was overcast with cooler temps and some wind.  As a climber on the Dawn Wall, these are dream conditions.  And they happened to roll in just in time.  I imagine Kevin felt today needed to be the day that 15 went down.  According to Tommy, Kevin showed pitch 15 what was up firing it off second try.  This was huge!!!

Kevin quickly moved up to pitch 16 to start working it out.  Pitch 16 has 2 holds that happen to be 8 feet apart from each other.  In order for Kevin to get from one hold to the next he just leaps.  No big deal (read sarcasm).  Kevin is amazing at dynamic moves like this, and can usually stick it quite consistently.  The tricky part is that he needs to complete the dyno, catch his breath, and then climb a 5.14 technical corner (where Tommy's loop around pitch met up).  If he slips on the technical part, he has to go back down and start all over again...with the dyno. w!  The combination of these things makes this pitch hard.  He gave it a few more full hearted efforts this evening, and will hopefully send the beast tomorrow!  It's going to be another battle to finish off 16, but nothing Kevin can't do!!!  Let's go Kev!  Tomorrow is the day 16 goes down!!!

  3. Our marriage lacked understanding, it was like every normal marriage as long as I didn't say anything that my husband disagreed with or win an argument. Am always trying to know the ins and outs of his life as his wife, and it turned into a huge blow-out. Our divorce wasn't really about our lack of understanding according to my therapist, it was as a result of a spiritual separation. She introduced me to DR OGUDUGU {greatogudugu@gmail.com} for spiritual reconciliation/understanding, proper healing and cleansing of wounds left my husband. My therapist was so honest to me and never wanted to waste my time, she saw that I have been living in pain with my devastating marriage and my heart has ached for years. I was in dire need of permanent solution from DR OGUDUGU after he assured me of smooth and easy result within 48hours immediately the spell is done. Like the honest man he is, Doc. proved my therapist right and brought back my husband exactly the way I wanted. My time with DR OGUDUGU was so magical, I never know anyone has the power to unit a broken home and heal a broken heart. Thanks to my therapist {Monica} and DR OGUDUGU {Email: greatogudugu@gmail.com...Website: http://greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com/ or call him on WHATSAPP: +2348055304321} for making us a better couple and example to a younger generation.
