Go Further!

Go Further’s Paul Tattersall is currently on the Phil Packer expedition trip to El Capitan. After being injured in Iraq Phil is campaigning to raise £1 million for injured service personnell and the wider disabled community. The trip is being covered by ITN and a host of other news sources in the UK and US. You can follow Phil’s updates on Twitter here.

The team is making steady progress on the 1800ft route with Paul, Andy Kirkpatrick and Ian Parnell making up the climbing team. Latest news is that they have completed the ninth pitch and are aiming to settle down for another night on the route.

The picture below shows Paul (right) and the team preparing for another pitch earlier today. More pictures soon.
