Two American rock climbers received congratulations from the President Obama


El Capitan is the world’s largest granite monolith and no one, until now, had ever made it to the summit in one continuous free-climb. President Barack Obama sent to the climbers his congratulations from the White House Twitter account. He appreciated their effort saying that a such performance “remind us that anything is possible.” The pioneering ascent comes after five years of training and failed attempts for both men, beginning since 2010. “I’m not giving up. I will rest. I will try again. I will succeed” are the words they posted online before the performance. Caldwell, is of Estes Park, Colorado, and Jorgeson, who is working as a climbing instructor, is of Santa Rosa, California. They are good friends and they made many climbs together.
