Hey everybody this is Peter Whittaker up on top with the whole First Ascent/RMI team. We are on top of Mt. Vinson it’s 5 p.m.  It’s about 31, 32 below zero and the wind is blowing about 18 - 20 knots.  It’s beautiful up here clear, low clouds and bitter, bitter cold.

We are going to try and push a picture out tonight when we get back to high camp and you’ll see we are all frosted up.  But we are happy, we are on top.  Give a yell you guys…

We’ve done it.  A beautiful day, a little brisk and we are going to put the phone away and head on out of here.

Alright that’s the word from on top of the bottom of the world.

We’ll shoot a call later on maybe from camp.

First Ascent, RMI and Eddie Bauer over and out.
