Two climbers in California’s Yosemite national park made history
After weeks of herculean effort, Kevin Jorgeson, 30, and Tommy Caldwell, 36, scaled the half-mile section of exposed granite known as the Dawn Wall on El Capitan peak.
Upon clambering over the final ledge they paused, looked at each other and raised their arms in triumph.
People watching from the park and online via a live feed hailed the feat, completed just after 3.30pm local time, as thrilling and inspirational.
Watch the awesome video.
