Tommy Caldwell abandons new route on El Cap

Caldwell abandoned his third attempt to complete the "Dawn Wall project" on El Cap after spending 16 nights on the wall. All I can say is, wow! He's still pushing the envelope.

I saw that and thought it was cool to see the press cover it.

Tommy C. What a wimp for bailing before it was done!


(only joking, I have much respect for him, Hes one of the best and doesn't even have all his fingers!)
