Merry Christmas from the Slopes of Mount Vinson!

Hauling sleds!

Merry Christmas from our team at Mount Vinson Low Camp (2774m/9,100ft)!  Here’s Garrett with holiday wishes and the climbing game plan:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Mount Vinson expedition team.  Today is Christmas Day.  Merry Christmas!

We are at Low Camp on Mount Vinson, and our plan is to head up to High Camp (3536m/11,600ft) tomorrow if the weather is good.  We’re about ready to get to bed here for a good night’s rest.  And then, tomorrow, wake up, have breakfast, and take a look at the weather.  If it’s good, we’ll head up to High Camp.

All’s well here on Vinson.  Have a wonderful Christmas Day!  We’ll check in soon.
