“It’s very rare in life that you get to witness people really pushing it to the limit, and to have a front seat,” says adventure photographer Corey Rich (@coreyrichproductions). For the past three weeks, he's been hanging thousands of feet over the floor of California's Yosemite Valley, documenting pro climbers Tommy Caldwell (@tommycaldwell) and Kevin Jorgeson (@kjorgeson) as they've made their way up the granite face of El Capitan's Dawn Wall. Using ropes only for safety, the pair made history today by charting and completing a route that is widely considered the most difficult climb ever attempted. Tommy has been attempting the climb for the past six years, and Kevin joined him in 2009. Even though the feat is complete, Corey stresses that the spirit of adventure extends beyond the face of the cliff. “I think if people take one thing away from this, it’s find adventure in your life,” he says. “It’s about unknown outcome, taking calculated risks and trying to make something beautiful out of that. Enjoy that experience, enjoy the ride.” For more photos from the ascent up the Dawn Wall, follow photographer @coreyrichproductions and climbers @tommycaldwell and @kjorgeson.
