Vinson Massif: Rest Day for the Team

Winds stayed mercifully calm throughout last night, but just as we got hoping for the morning sunshine (it takes until 11:30 AM for the sun to get around the mountain and into our camp) the storm came in again good and strong for several hours.  There was not any question of going ahead with our carry to high camp.  Instead, we rested, which turned out to be quite pleasant when the cloud caps blew off the peaks and the winds quit.  Just a lazy day in the sun, trying to drink plenty of water and get organized for going higher.  This evening’s dinner was relaxed and leisurely, the total opposite of our battle with the elements 24 hours before.  Things don’t seem totally stable yet, but there isn’t much doubt now that we are headed for better days.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
