The Nose free and free in a day 
 

Since Lynn Hill freed the Nose back in 1993, it has gained a reputation of being a sandbag at 8b+/14a. Now Climbing reports that Tommy Caldwell and Beth Rodden have repeated it. The pair did a 'team free' ascent, each leading about half the pitches, with Caldwell leading the crux "Changing Corners' pitch (5.14a/8b+) and Rodden doing the stopper 'Great Roof' pitch (5.13c/8a+).
Two days later, Tommy returned and fired off a 12 hour ascent of the Free Nose leading all the pitches whilst belayed by his wife.
