To start the new year, our second Mount Vinson expedition team moved up to High Camp to position themselves for their summit push within the next couple of days. Terray Sylvester calls in today’s dispatch:
Hello, this is Terray calling in for the second Madison Mountaineering Mount Vinson expedition of the season. It’s New Year’s Day.
Today we woke up and had bacon and french toast for breakfast and then moved from Low Camp (2774m/9,100ft) to High Camp (3536m/11,600ft). We had beautiful weather all day – clear, sunny skies and basically calm air, no wind.
Now we’re settled down in High Camp. We had hamburgers for dinner with risotto and veggies.
