This week, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgesen made climbing history for completing their free climb of El Capitan's Dawn Wall at Yosemite -- deemed the toughest climb in the world. Today we revisit highlights of two summer trips we made to Camp Curry in Yosemite Valley, 1999 and 2000. Back live next week from the SF Ferry Building. Sedge welcomes:
JESSE COLIN YOUNG, songwriter and lead singer of the popular group The Youngbloods in the 1960s.
CHRIS SMITHER, folk/blues singer and guitarist whose music draws deeply from blues, folk, modern poets and philosophers.
