Tommy Caldwell has been attempting the route with fellow American climber Kevin Jorgeson, but Jorgeson has had to abandon attempts at this time due to an injury sustained whilst trying the route.
Last year Caldwell and Jorgeson also had a major attempt at the wall but were thwarted by a large storm. Fingers crossed the weather holds out for Tommy this year.
