Climbers Conquer El Capitan

On today’s segment of the 3 AM Ego’s; we strayed from our usual hilarious and irrelevant content to focus on the incredible feat of two climbers this past week.

Two climbers who have been training for five years together climbed 3,000 feet to the top of El Capitan of Yosemite National Park. CBS News

says that the climbers started December 27 and completed the trek on Wednesday January 17th. They are first to free climb the wall with only a rope and harness and using their own strength. They slept in tents suspended in air and ate canned peaches and even sipped a little whiskey on the way.

Kevin (host), Sigmund (producer) and I all admired the climber’s effort and were glad to see something positive in the news for a change.
