Vinson Massif

Vinson Massif: Team Checks in from Camp 1

Hey, this is Seth Waterfall checking in from Camp 1 on Vinson Massif on the continent of Antarctica.

The group is doing great, we just returned a few hours ago from a carry to High Camp.  We are sitting pretty now with our cache in up high and we are going to take a rest day tomorrow after three solid days of working our way up the mountain.  The full team is looking forward to catching up on our hydration and doing some reading and relaxing around camp.  Then we will be all set for a summit bid.

We are hoping for good weather, the forecast looks great for the next couple of days and hopefully that holds.  Today was a beautiful day up on the fixed ropes and getting on the upper plateau of Vinson.  We are hoping for continued sun and calm weather which has been the name of the game for last two days.

All is well here.  Happy Thanksgiving to everybody back home, we are thinking about everybody.  We need to stand on the top of this mountain and then we’ll start heading back.

Take care,

RMI Guide Seth Waterfall
