It was unimaginable at the time, but in January 2015 two rock climbers completed a 19-day free climb of the Dawn Wall rock face on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park (Calif.).
The ascent was the first of the 3,000-foot Dawn Wall in a single free-climb. Climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgerson used their hands and feet only to make get to the top, with ropes for safety.
