After persevering through five nights at Mount Vinson‘s High Camp, our Team Three’s patience and tactics paid off and they were successful today in making it to the highest point in Antarctica, the summit of Vinson Massif. Guide Terray Sylvester provided this text message from the mountain:
Good news from Antarctica! Most of our climbers summited Mount Vinson today in excellent weather.
The rest of the team is already in base camp relaxing and enjoying some good meals: pancakes, eggs and bacon for breakfast today, and hamburgers and french fries for dinner.
