Arc’teryx Presents: Wet Lycra Nightmare

When Jordan Cannon fell near the end of a 5.13 pitch on Wet Lycra Nightmare (5.13d), the steepest big wall in the Yosemite Valley, he didn’t give up. At least not on his climbing partner, Sam Stroh. Moving slowly upwards the duo gave it their all, and the sun-baked day ended with Stroh becoming the 5th person to ever climb the elusive wall. Next, it was Jordan’s turn to do it in his own style, free-climbing the iconic route over two days and becoming the first person to do so in the process.
