New Dawn free
November 04, 2019, 08:45:36 pm
Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold have climbed a new free route based around the aid route New Dawn (a Charlie Porter creation on the Dawn Wall area of El Cap).  It starts up Leo Holding’s Passage to Freedom (New Dawn free as far as El Cap. Towers) eliminating the bolt-on hold. The Dawn Wall takes the upper section of New Dawn and the new route appears to be a more direct line into the Dawn Wall dihedrals. The whole route goes at a surprisingly reasonable 8b, which begs the question why bother with the Dawn Wall traverse pitches!
