Jorgeson and Honnold free solos Meshuga!

Alex Honnold and Kevin Jorgeson has made the 5th and 6th ascents of Seb Grieve's Meshuga, E9 6c, at the Black Rocks. Not only that: They free soloed it! In reality, the difference from leading it isn't exactly great, as you can't place much gear anyway. From Alex this was almost expected, but, man what a recovery from Kevin after being bed bound with the flu and everything! Kudos!
If the weather cooperates I wouldn't be surprised if The Groove gets at least one ascent this weekend.
I'll try to get Kevin and/or Alex to answer a couple of questions shortly.
