Pint Glass Commemorates Historic Climb

To commemorate the now famous ascent of El Capitan’s Dawn Wall by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, a company created a pint glass that maps the duo’s route.

The team became the first to successfully free climb the notoriously difficult wall in Yosemite Valley over a 19-day period in January. The media covered their journey heavily and the two became literal rock stars after completing the climb.

Nativ designed the glasses in both stainless steel and glass.

You can buy the glasses at the company’s Kickstarter campaign, where they go for $17 and up. For a little extra dough you can even get a glass hand signed by the climbers with all proceeds benefitting Yosemite Conservancy.

The glasses can also be purchased online for $20.65 apiece.

So, even though you may have no chance of ever climbing the Dawn Wall, you can now help commemorate it every time you down your favorite beverage.
