FRI NIGHT VID: West Face of Sentinel - The Legacy Project

This week's Friday Night Video features Kevin Jorgeson and Ben Rueck making the first free ascent of the West Face of Sentinel in Yosemite Valley, California. Tom Frost and Yvon Chouinard claimed the first ascent of the route in 1960 - the third of the Yosemite 'Golden Age' big wall climbs, after the Northwest Face of Half Dome in 1957, and The Nose of El Cap in 1958. Kevin and Ben return as part of a 'Legacy Project' to free this historic route.
