TNB: Sharma and Glowacz Send World’s Steepest Rock Climb. The world-record roof climb is in the Sultanate of Oman about 62 miles southeast of Muscat. The route, Into the Light (13 pitches, 5.14a) wends its way through one of the largest known cave chambers, a spooky abyss called Majlis al Jinn—The Meeting Place of Genies.
Two climbers in California’s Yosemite national park make history as they reach the summit of what has been called the world’s hardest rock climb. Kevin Jorgeson and Tommy Caldwell, seen climbing here, scaled the half-mile section of exposed granite known as the Dawn Wall on El Capitan peak. Corey Rich/Aurora Photos
