Vinson Massif: Move to High Camp

Another excellent day on ice.  We enjoyed an absolutely calm and beautiful day today as we broke camp down low and moved up high.  We got moving by 2:15 PM (as usual it was bitterly cold before the sun came around at 11:30 AM) and moved well and efficiently up the steep fixed ropes.  Our training from the carry two days ago and our rest from yesterday seemed to be paying dividends as it took just six hours to reach high camp.  The tents were pitched and dinner got cooked.  Naturally we talked over our plans and hopes for tomorrow.  It could be our shot at the top, but of course everybody must have a good night first, and we need continued luck with the weather.

Best regards from 13,000 ft,
