Well, it sounds like a picture perfect day at the first camp on the team’s way up Mount Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica. Ariana called in a very nice update from 10,000 feet on the Branscomb Glacier.
The team carried loads a ways up above camp today, reviewing the skills and techniques they will need to employ to make the big, difficult day moving up to High Camp tomorrow. The weather was clear and calm, which is not typical for such southern latitudes.
Here is Ariana!
