After four years of documenting climbs on America's most iconic big wall, Yosemite-based blogger Tom Evans is closing his El Cap Report blog. Evans began the blog in 2007, photographing and tracking the progress of each party on El Capitan's main routes from his spot on El Capitan Bridge over the Merced River. Among the exploits he caught on film were Alex Honnold's record rope solo of the Nose and Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson's attempt at freeing the Dawn Wall. In his final report, Evans, who turns 67 in a few days, wrote that running the blog had become too time-consuming and that he felt it was time to "let it go and get out and do the other things I love to do in Yosemite."
