Last week Tommy Caldwell and Beth Rodden free climbed Corazon on El Capitan over a 7 day ground up push. Put up by the Huber brothers at 5.13+ they swapped leads to Gray Ledges and then Tommy led most of the pitches to the top.

After resting for a few days. Tommy climbed Golden Gate (5.13) in 20 hours with Beth Rodden providing support. Caldwell onsighted all but one of the pitches that were not shared with Golden Gate.

See Supertopo for more details.
