Guide Jacob Schmitz called to report that the January 6th Vinson Team is on the ice! Jim, Chuck, and Ariana left Punta Arenas early this morning, flew to Union Glacier on a big Ilyushin cargo jet, unloaded, then hopped on a smaller airplane, a Twin Otter, that flew them to Vinson Base Camp. They’ve come a long way! The team is setting up camp, going over skills, and then taking a well deserved rest. The plan is to move to Low Camp tomorrow.
