Vinson Massif: Rest Day

Elevation: 9,100'

Again it was bitterly cold in the hours before the sun hit low camp, but then the rest of the day was calm sunny and perfect.  We took full advantage by resting the day away.  We ate, we drank, we napped and we repeated ourselves.  The teams that went for the top (some with success, some without) came by on their descent and we traded notes and wished each other well.  It is certainly our hope that tomorrow we will go for high camp feeling stronger and more ready as a result of today’s rest.  But as usual, we need continued good luck in the weather department.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
