Vinson Team calls in from Camp 1

Scott Grischow calls in from Camp 1 (Low Camp) on Mount Vinson.  They spent yesterday in base camp watching it snow and waiting for “the storm of the season” to pass, which didn’t really materialize as forecast.  So they spent an extra day in base camp resting and getting ready for the move today.   It’s about 6 miles and 2000 ft elevation gain to Camp 1 and it took them about 6 hours to make the move up the glacier to their new home.   Listen to Scott’s call from Camp 1.
