The conquering of Yosemite - Dawn Wall!
For those of you unfamiliar with the world of Rock Climbing and for those of you who know what I'm talking about...I wanted to share my gratitude for some serious killer inspiration!
You may have heard a little about two guys who stand around 6 foot tall, climbing this chunk of rock called the Dawn Wall in Yosemite National Park, USA. The thought of climbing anything for most people is impressive motivation but let me share with you a few jaw dropping stats about their 19 day ADVENTURE...
> Climbers - Tommy Caldwell & Kevin Jorgeson
> El Capitan Dawn Wall stands at 3000 Feet
> Pitches (sections in which climbers can stop for a moments rest) 31
> Climb Completed - 1 expedition, 19 days
> Type of Rock - slab granite, small 2 finger holds and slippery!
> Training for Climb - 7 years in the making!
> Tommy only has 9 fingers
To say these guys are dedicated is an understatement! In my 17 years of climbing I have always been blown away by the sheer determination of most rock climbers but this amazing feet has blown my mind!
They both slept in tents hanging off the rock wall suspended in mid air!
Weather male or female, this successful expedition just goes to show that as humans we are capable of anything and good things TAKE TIME!
Work hard and you will reap the rewards, feeling mentally and physically successful on the road to a Strong, Balanced and Harmonic Life!
CONGRATULATION Tommy & Kevin, you smashed it out of the (National) Park!
