Jacob checked in from the Mountain Trip Vinson team as they finished up breakfast and prepare to head to the summit this morning! They had a good day yesterday moving up to high camp after a slow start to the trip due to snow and wind and generally bad weather. The weather has changed finally, and they awoke to another beautiful day in Antarctica after a cold (-30c) night. The sun is up now providing some warmth and they are finishing up breakfast in anticipation of heading for the summit this morning. The winds are light and the skies are clear and they should have a good shot at getting to the top of Mount Vinson today!
Here’s the Vinson team calling in from high camp before heading for the summit.
