Vinson Massif: Dave & Team Carry Supplies Amidst the Storm

The storm rages on.  When we could catch a glimpse of the Vinson Massif today, it was continually capped in thick wind-sculpted cloud.  But it really wasn’t bad down here on the Branscomb Glacier.  Our basecamp is nicely sheltered… so far.  It is rare for big winds to find their way into our valley, but it does happen.  This storm isn’t finished yet either.  Our forecast from ALE suggests it will be with us at least another day.  Today we did manage to get a carry of food and gear in to “half camp” about 2.5 hours above Vinson Base Camp.  It was great to stretch legs and it will certainly ease our eventual move up to low camp.  We took about an hour to scoot back down to base in cold and shadowy conditions.  A hot dinner in our dining tent got all feeling good again.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
