Kevin Jorgeson and Tommy Caldwell are just pitches away from sending the Dawn Wall. Currently, Jorgeson is two pitches away from Caldwell’s high-point.

Roughly 20 hours ago, Caldwell posted on Instagram:

“Kevin has just two more pitches to go to get to my high point of Wino Tower and the place where we make a mad dash to the summit.”

Jorgeson climbed pitch 15 (5.14d) on his 11th attempt Friday night and then pushed on to stick the infamous 6-foot sideways dyno.

“Momentum is a powerful force,” posted Jorgeson on Facebook. “When it’s on your side, everything feels a bit easier.”

Once Jorgeson sends the remaining two 5.13’s (consisting of a 5.13c and 5.13d) the team will have only 5.12 climbing to the summit of El Cap and the top of the world’s hardest big-wall free route.
