Vinson Summit Attempt Coming Soon!
Happy New Year!!! Via sat phone, Garrett Madison reports in on the progress of team one’s climb to the highest peak at Antarctica:
Hey! This is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Mount Vinson expedition in Antarctica. Today is December 31st and we climbed up to High Camp (3536 m / 11,600 ft) today and moved in. We setup our camp and had dinner and now we are all tucked in and ready for bed.
We had a good day; it wasn’t too windy, clear skies for the most part and sunny. We are happy to be up here at High Camp. We are thinking about going for the summit tomorrow or the next day, depending on the weather. We will check in soon. Thanks!!
