Vinson Massif: Teams Rests at High Camp and Readies for Summit Bid

A long and easy day at high camp, preparing for the summit.  There wasn’t a breath of wind, which we are hoping will be the situation tomorrow as well.  Still plenty of cloud about, although we seem to be near the top of it all.  I spoke on the radio with Vinson basecamp and they seem to be down in the soup.  Clouds shouldn’t present any great problem for us though, as long as the predictions hold true and the calm continues.  The forecast calls for -38 C tomorrow on top.  It was far more comfortable than that in our tents today though.  We napped, we drank water, we napped, we ate food, and we napped.  Tomorrow we climb.

Best Regards,
