Vinson Massif: Hahn & Team - Quiet Time

This was a quiet and easy day at Union Glacier Camp.  We slept well and ate well at low altitude.  We sorted equipment, chatted with fellow climbers, wrote in our journals and every now and then stood outside the tents to see the mountains, the snowcats and airplanes and the Kansas-sized expanse of ice stretching to our Northeast. 

Many spent the day browsing through the great Antarctic Exploration library in camp, learning of Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen.  For a change of pace in the evening, the climbing teams sat for a story session detailing the pioneering expeditions to Mount Everest

Tomorrow we’ll see if conditions allow for our “scheduled” exit flight.

Best Regards,
