NBC live streams final Dawn Wall push

  1. I wasn’t able to watch the live climb, so these photos are amazing, scary; even knowing the successful climb results, i was almost holding my breath. Thank you for taking the time to capture the last Diamond-sized climbing and tbeir summit/ completion celebration!! I love the dizzying shot of the guys mid-hug. Those ropes and carabiners are worth every cent 🙂

    1. It was interesting trying to keep track of which climber was which. They kept putting on and taking off various shirts and jackets. I was intrigued that they stopped to change socks and maybe shoes. Couldn’t tell for sure. After the hug up top, they both sat down and changed shoes and (donned?) socks again, put on warmer jackets, and ditched the helmets — all before leaving that last perch and moving up and over to meet the folks waiting for them.

      I read somewhere that Kevin wore that lime green t-shirt for the entire climb in memory of a climbing friend, Brad Parker, who was killed in a fall a few months earlier.

      Every inch of their climb was photographed and filmed. I’m sure there will be an awesome movie available someday.

... and that's my two cents
