The Dawn Wall Preview and Q&A

Climber Kevin Jorgeson will be in attendance to screen never-before-seen footage of his recent epic climb of El Capitan’s Dawn Wall with Tommy Caldwell, from the new documentary by Big Up Productions and Sender Films.

Considered by many, “The hardest route ever climbed,” and “The Climb of the Century,” the climb garnered worldwide media attention and was featured on the front page of the New York Times

In 2009, Kevin Jorgeson asked Tommy Caldwell if he needed a partner for his new project on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Over the next six years, Tommy and Kevin spent hundreds of days working out the pieces, failing constantly, but keeping the dream alive that one day they might free climb the Dawn Wall. On December 27, 2014, Kevin and Tommy started their “push” to leave the ground and not return until they either succeeded or were stormed off. 19 days later, their dream became a reality when they stood on the top of El Capitan.
