TWO of the world’s best rock climbers coped with fright­en­ing falls and the deaths of two fel­low climbers on the same rock in a month-long quest to shat­ter a myth­i­cal record in Yosemite Na­tional Park.

Tenac­ity paid off Wed­nes­day as Alex Hon­nold and Tommy Cald­well reached the top of El Cap­i­tan, the most cel­e­brated slab of gran­ite on Earth, in less than two hours, break­ing a bar­rier com­pared to the four-minute mile.

The blis­ter­ing time of 1 hour, 58 min­utes and seven sec­onds capped weeks of prac­tice and a few stum­bles on the so-called Nose route that runs up the mid­dle of the 3,000-foot (915 me­ters) sheer mono­lith.

Hon­nold didn’t think they were on a record pace un­til he glanced at his phone timer as he ran for the tree that marks the fin­ish line, he told The As­so­ci­ated Press by phone as he hiked down from the sum­mit.

“Oh my god, we’re do­ing it,” he thought as he se­cured the rope to the tree and hoped Cald­well would hurry. “It was slightly emo­tional when we fin­ished it. I had a wave of, ‘Oh wow.’ I’m pretty proud we saw it through.”

The duo broke the record three times in the past week, carv­ing more than 20 min­utes off a 2017 mark. Hon­nold said it would have been easy to stop af­ter break­ing records Mon­day and May 30, but they pressed to­ward the two-hour goal he con­sid­ered the “hu­man po­ten­tial.”

Hans Florine, who has held the record on and off be­tween 1990 and 2012 — the last time with Hon­nold — said the mark is equiv­a­lent to the on­go­ing quest to break the two-hour marathon or Roger Ban­nis­ter’s 1954 achieve­ment in the mile.

“We were push­ing the five-hour bar­rier be­fore and then the four-hour bar­rier and then the three-hour bar­rier. So which one of those is the four­minute mile?” Florine said be­fore the mark was bro­ken. “I think it is get­ting close.”

Climb­ing times on El Cap have fallen pre­cip­i­tously since War­ren Hard­ing and two oth­ers made the first as­cent 60 years ago. That took 12 days in a final push fol­low­ing 48 days of ad­vance work over 18 months as Hard­ing pounded bolts into the rock to aid his climb.

“As I ham­mered in the last bolt and stag­gered over the rim, it was not at all clear to me who was the con­queror and who was the con­quered,” Hard­ing said after­ward.

Yosemite is mecca for climbers be­cause of its vast ar­ray of soar­ing gran­ite walls and peaks. El Cap, though, looms largest and offers 58 dis­tinct routes. The Nose is the best known and typ­i­cally takes ac­com­plished climbers four or five days.

Climbers jam hands and feet into finger- and fist-width cracks to inch their way up the ver­ti­cal wall. Some­times there is lit­tle more to grasp or perch on than a sliver the width of a few coins. Other cracks abruptly end in a smooth sea of gran­ite, forc­ing climbers to swing left or right to find the next hand or foothold.

“It’s a very com­pli­cated route,” said Daniel Duane, au­thor of “El Cap­i­tan.” ‘’It me­an­ders all over the place and it has pen­du­lum swings and bolt lad­ders and there are lit­tle vari­a­tions where you can go this way in­stead of that way, so there’s a ton of trick­ery in­volved in shav­ing off time.”

Speed can come at a dev­as­tat­ing price. Climbers are roped to­gether for safety, and they clip their life­line into pro­tec­tive pieces placed in cracks along the way to catch them if they fall.

But the amount of gear in a race against the clock is pared to the bare min­i­mum to save weight, and climbers some­times move in tan­dem with nei­ther an­chored to the rock.

Two ex­perts were speed climb­ing in that man­ner on El Cap’s Free­blast route Satur­day when one fell and pulled the other 1,000 feet (305 me­ters) to their deaths. Spec­ta­tors in the val­ley be­low who had been hoping to see Hon­nold and Cald­well were hor­ri­fied.

Hon­nold and Cald­well were not climb­ing that day and they can­celed plans to go for the record Sun­day and in­stead did a train­ing run.

“It’s re­ally hard to go for it 100 per­cent af­ter some­thing like that hap­pens,” said Hon­nold, who said the deaths of Ja­son Wells and Tim Klein weighed on them. “It’s a worst-case sce­nario, the stuff of night­mares re­ally.”

Cald­well sur­vived two big falls un­scathed, in­clud­ing a 100-footer (30.5-me­ter) in prac­tice runs.

“It was pretty scary be­cause it was such a gar­gan­tuan fall,” said pho­tog­ra­pher Austin Si­adak, who has been shoot­ing video of the team for a doc­u­men­tary. “I saw him hurtling up­side down through the air and then bounc­ing on the end of the rope.”

Once Cald­well came to a rest, he chalked up his hands, swung over to a crack and re­sumed his up­ward progress.

Hon­nold, 32, and Cald­well, 39, are ar­guably the biggest stars of rock climb­ing, but both suf­fered small in­juries. Cald­well’s knees and fin­gers were blood­ied and Hon­nold got a nasty rope burn in a fall that tore a chunk from a finger.

Cald­well shared fame in 2015 with Kevin Jorge­son on a first as­cent of El Cap’s Dawn Wall, one of the world’s hard­est routes, us­ing no as­sis­tance in a 19-day climb and only ropes and gear to pro­tect against a fall.

Hon­nold is the only per­son to have climbed El Cap solo with­out a rope or any pro­tec­tion, a per­ilous feat that earned him both ad­mi­ra­tion and crit­i­cism for be­ing reck­less.

The two climbers rep­re­sent a “dream team” from a gen­er­a­tion that honed their craft in rock gyms and “are show­ing up in the out­doors with a rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent abil­ity level than they used to,” Duane said.

So even Hon­nold and Cald­well’s new high marks may not stand.

“It’s hard to imag­ine, gosh, how could any­body get better than those guys?” Duane said. “Climb­ing is a lot fur­ther along than it was 30 years ago on that curve to­ward ath­letic ma­tu­rity, but I don’t think it’s anywhere near the outer lim­its.” – AP
