Vinson Massif

Vinson Massif: Starting slow… Tapering off

Our first Vinson climb of 2013 is not quite off the ground yet.  The team successfully negotiated the airports of the world to assemble in Punta Arenas in the South end of Chile, and we’ve gone through several meetings, gear checks and briefings.  We’ve shared a few great meals and some walks around town.  We’ve packed our bags and weighed them and consigned them to our logistical partner in this endeavor, ALE, for loading onto the Ilyushin 76 jet transport.  Normally, we’d be savoring a final night indoors before the journey to less comfortable regions of the Antarctic interior.  But we’ve learned that stormy weather is hampering flight operations at Union Glacier.  The needed supply flights are backed up a bit and we can’t possibly get in within the next few days.  We choose to greet this news in a positive light… It gives us the chance to be tourists in Patagonia for a few days.  Stand by to see what we get up to.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

Hi Guys!  I will be following you on your journey to get an idea of what to expect when I arrive there in a couple of weeks.
