July 20, 1999 - Day 2

Mark and Mike are making progress, however the process is slow but steady as Mike is battling with the flu. Mark is unfazed, "Mike has always been there for me, and I will be there for him.We're a team and that is what's going to get us to the top."

Above Sickle Ledge the terrain is very difficult, rough, loose blocks and overhangs. It is very challenging for Mark, as he needs to pull himself up over loose rock and teetering pillars. They hoped to bivouac at Dolt Tower, at about the 700 foot point, tonight, but may not make it that far.

Hopefully they will make better time tomorrow and reach the El Cap Tower.
