Honnold and Caldwell Complete First Ascent of Fitz Traverse

The Fitz Traverse involved roughly three miles of climbing with over 13,000 feet of vertical gain. The enchainment included free-climbing up to 5.11d with some aid (C1) and 65-degree slopes according to Garibotti. Honnold and Caldwell simul-climbed much of the terrain, and Garibotti reports that they dispatched the 20-pitch Pilar Goretta “in a mere three pitches.”

Caldwell and Honnold started climbing at 9:45 a.m. on February 12, and finished the traverse at 10 a.m. on February 16.
