More Climbing Vids: Free Climbing El Cap?

Speaking of cool climbing vids, these two come our way courtesy of The Backcountry Goat Blog and Climbing Narc. The two part video, both of which are found below, show Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson working a new route on the Southeast face of El Capitan in Yosemite. Caldwell is hoping to free climb the route, which requires new pitches in the 5.13 to 5.14 difficulty range. This is a project he has been working on for some time, and isn’t sure is possible to complete. More good stuff on video!
