T minus 12 hours
Drove into a snowy! and wet Yosemite valley this morning but with better weather on its way it looks like we will be heading up to El Cap tomorrow with Major Phil Packer. The hope is for Phil to make it to base of Zodiac uner his own steam but I imagine this could be one the cruxes of this challenge for him. The ground is only a steady rise but its pretty rough and with Phils limited range of movement its going to be tough. But I'm sure he'll be equal too it.
