Victorious Vinson Team One departs Vinson Base Camp and Team Two arrives! Expedition leader Garrett Madison calls in from Vinson Base Camp with a recap of the day:
Hello! This is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Mount Vinson expedition season. Today myself, Jen, and John all came down from High Camp after our summit yesterday and made it to Vinson Base Camp where the Twin Otters came in, picked up Jen and John and brought them back to Union Glacier Camp where they will be awaiting their flights back to Punta Arenas in a few days.
Meanwhile, guide Terray Sylvester and climbers Thomas and Sarah arrived at Union Glacier Camp and flew to Vinson Base Camp today, so we’re all together here. It’s a beautiful sunny evening – very calm and warm considering we’re in Antarctica. We’re glad to be here, everything’s on schedule, and nice flights coming in today – great views and we’re looking forward to getting our second expedition of the season on Mount Vinson underway!
