Latest update from today:

Morning El Cap update: Team Wampler has decided to take it slow today. They will be climbing about 80 feet and then getting to a great ledge where they can recoup, rehydrate, and breathe. They will be topping out tomorrow evening, SO this is good day to be sending EXTRA good energy towards El Cap for Steve. See you at the party!!! Send it STEVE!!! =)

Yep,

Tommy and Dave are doing a fine job leading The Wamp up the Big Stone. Looking forward to hearing the spray in person from them and also from Steve as he is probably getting schooled on his first exposure to climbing. That's pretty amaizing that Steve is up there doing what we all love to do. The whole team is working hard for Steve and deserve recognition for getting him up and down safely while filming all along the way. That's pretty dang cool too!

Good on ya,

Museman

I think it is amazing that Tommy (T2) and Steve have teamed up to make this whole thing happen! I met Tommy Thompson just shy of a year ago and he has pulled me out of a 10 year hiatus from climbing and has allowed me to reprioritize my life. It does not surprise me at all that he has been a big part of making this happen for Steve and his wonderful foundation. Thank you T2 for helping me find my climbing mojo again and changing my life and the lives of so many others!
