Vinson Massif: Hahn & Team Rest Day at Low Camp

As planned, we took a break from mountain climbing today.  We rested primarily to catch up on hydration and acclimatization before our assault on high camp and the summit.  But since today’s weather was a little on the sloppy side, with clouds at all levels, some falling snow and hints of wind aloft, it wasn’t a bad day to be taking it easy at low camp.  We ate, drank, rested, read, watched TV and listened to music.  The teams that went to Vinson’s summit yesterday came through on their descent to base today.  All seemed well and happy, and of course relieved that they’d gotten to the top before this particular pulse of inclement weather came through.  We will just hope it is gentle and short lived.  We’d like to move up tomorrow.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

It sounds like you have a great team and hoping weather will be on your side to make it to the summit. Here we are all singing “they’ll all be home for Christmas"so God speed. Love, Deb
