Vinson Massif: Stormin’ Up High and at Low Camp

It was a storm day on Mount Vinson, so we stayed put at low camp.  You might wonder how such a day differs from the rest day we took yesterday… it isn’t very different.  We ate, we slept, we read, we listened to music, we watched TV.  The weather seemed to be improving early in the day, in that wind speeds appeared to be dropping on the peaks and ridges above us.  Our latest forecasts also suggested that we’d be rewarded for waiting as the outlook is for an easing in both wind and cloud for the next few days.  But none of that seemed to do us much good at low camp today.  The sun continually found thick clouds and murk to hide behind and so it was a cold afternoon and evening.  The team didn’t hang out for long in our dining tent after dinner… back to the sleeping bags with fingers crossed for a more useful day tomorrow. 

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

You are very experienced with “The waiting game”!

Hang in there ... taking full advantage of “resting up” in preparation of successfully “heading up” when it becomes safe and appropriate to do so.

Take care,

Hope the weather clears soon for you. Love that you can “watch TV”. You have more power than we do in the North Georgia mountains when it hits a balmy 25 degrees+. Be safe and good luck. We’re thinking of you.

Hope you guys can get on the move again and warm up once the weather clears. Good luck with the push to high camp. Love to Fatima, Peter
