Tommy's goal yesterday was to finish pitch 16, which is the last 5.14 pitch of the route. Pitch 16 is a technical corner pitch. After years of free climbing routes on El Cap Tommy has perfected this style of climbing. Tommy was able to execute this pitch after warming up on the moves. The fact that Tommy has made it through all of the crux pitches of the route is really exciting. As I've said before...there are still a lot of pitches left to climb, but the dream of climbing this route is getting closer and closer to being realized.
