Vinson Massif: Hahn & Team Carry Halfway

We are back to great weather on Vinson.  There was still a little wind apparent up high during the morning, and a few fog banks forming and dissipating down below, but by mid-day one could only describe it as “splitter”.  Perfect blue sky, big bright sun and no wind… splitter.  Team 2 had a fine breakfast at Vinson Base and then we settled into a light training and review session.  Bill, Sara, Fatima and Larry each have fine climbing resumes, so it was only necessary to run through some quick examples of crevasse rescue and anchoring systems to refresh memories.  In the afternoon we went for our shakedown cruise: a carry of food and gear to half camp.  It was great to stretch legs and get some views of the surrounding humongous peaks.  We were back to Base by around 7 PM, in time for dinner in the strong evening sun.  We turned in for bed confident that the sunshine would keep tents warm well into the night.  Sometime after one or two AM the sun will go behind the mountain and life will get cool, but by then we’ll be sleeping… Dreaming of the move to low camp tomorrow.

Word is that the Ilyushin is flying to Union tonight, so Team 1 (Kara, Juan, Piotr, and Spencer) should have breakfast in South America.  Bon Voyage.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
