Jorg Verhoeven and Katharina Saurwein single-pitch climbing in Yosemite

di

Watch Jorg Verhoeven and Katharina Saurwein climbing some of the most famous single pitch rock climbs in Yosemite after retiring from climbing competitions.

After a highly successful competition career, Jorg Verhoeven and Katharina Saurwein decided to concentrate fully on climbing outdoors. Although they have visited Yosemite valley on numerous occasions in the past and clocked up milage on big walls such as The Nose and Dihedral Wall on El Capitan, one of their goals after fully retiring from competitions was to try some of the classic single pitches. Here’s the couple of calibre climbs such as Separate Reality, Cosmic Debris, The Phoenix, Fish Crack and Peace.
