New Free Route On Liberty Cap

Since I’ve only been posting bad news out of Yosemite, it seems like now would be a good time to post about something good like this new free route on Liberty Cap established by Lucho River and Cedar Wright:

Lucho Rivera and Cedar Wright have completed the first all-free ascent of the southwest face of Liberty Cap above Yosemite Valley. The two men redpointed the 16-pitch route, tentatively called Mahtah (the Native American name for Liberty Cap), on May 31, with Wright leading the majority of the crux pitches and Rivera following free.

    Shout out to my bud, Luke Stefurak who was within range of redpointing his own route a few weeks back on LC. Good effort Luke!

    Does anybody know if this is what they were climbing in that ESPN SportsCenter spot from a few nights ago?
