So…this is happening (maybe…hopefully) :
Chris Sharma will join Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, and Jonathan Siegrist for this fall’s attempts on the Dawn Wall, a multi-year project to create the world’s hardest big-wall free climb. The team will begin working on the Dawn Wall this week, pending resolution of the federal government shutdown, which has closed Yosemite National Park.
I’ll be honest, I did a triple take and checked the date on my calendar when I saw this. Not because I don’t believe that Sharma could excel at this sort of thing, but rather because this is an insane team of climbers to have together on the wall. Add Dave Graham to the mix and my head might explode.
This leaves us no choice, call your congressman and demand they support Dawn Wall 2013.
