On Sunday July 29th, Steve Levin reported that he he watched Tommy Caldwell redpoint every pitch on the "Honeymoon is Over on the Diamond". Roger Briggs confirmed it, so the Diamond now has it's first 5.13.

Also, stop the presses! (Wait a minute we don't have presses.)

Topher Donahue and Roger Briggs free-climbed the entire "Bright Star" route last week. Located on the right of the Yellow Wall area, the route climbs excellent rock with almost every pitch rated hard 5.11, including the pitches above Table Ledge, through the large roof where Ed Webster originally nailed. In the 80's Charlie Fowler and Scott Cosgrove free climbed a good portion of the route, but this appears to be the FFA in it's entirety.
