YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. — On the 19th day, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, both now bearded, reached the summit of El Capitan’s Dawn Wall on Wednesday, completing a quest that included years of planning and that many considered the most challenging rock climb in the world.
Dozens of family members and friends greeted the climbers when they reached the top at 3:25 p.m. on a cloudless day. After Mr. Caldwell hugged his wife and Mr. Jorgeson hugged his girlfriend, they were given sparkling wine.
