Day 15 on the Dawn Wall

Kevin cruised through pitch 16 today and 17 today!  After 17 was done the weather said there was going to be a 100% chance of rain for a few hours, oddly enough, so they called it for the day.  Tomorrow they are hoping to get Kevin up to Wino Tower so he and Tommy can start working towards the summit together!!  SO EXCITING!!!!  The pitches Kevin needs to take down tomorrow are still hard pitches, but he is flying high from getting pitch 15 and 16 done and I don't think it'll be a problem.

Thank you everyone for all of your cheers and support.  The guys appreciate it and so do I.  It has been amazing to see so many people rally behind Tommy and Kevin.  This really is an awesome feat of perseverance and hard work and it's been fun getting to share it all with everyone.  Even those naysayers who don't understand it.  :)  Let's get these guys to the top!!!

Here's some psyche from the portaledge today.  Corey and Brett and the rest of the crew capturing this all have been doing an amazing job, and I can't wait to see what comes of their hard work!!  Photo:  Corey Rich

  5. I am a 60 year old urban woman who has stood in the Valley, staring up at El Capitan - through all seasons - and felt awe and wonder as well as a deep gratitude for my good fortune to be alive in this place. Now, sitting here in my comfortable living room after following your blog for days now - along with Tom Evan's photos and blog - I feel that same wonder and awe for your Tommy and his friend Kevin whose hearts and courage and stamina must be made out of the same stuff as that granite they are climbing! I also feel that same gratitude to be alive to witness this event and hope that you, Becca, will always be sustained by the memories of this time in your life. Thank you so much.
