Vinson Massif: Hahn & Team Move to High Camp

At low camp, we woke to another thoroughly cloudy day.  But it wasn’t as cold as yesterday and there wasn’t any wind up above that we could detect.  We ate our usual late breakfast and checked in with Vinson Basecamp via the radio to hear the latest forecast (the same folks at Union Glacier who try to find weather windows for the Ilyushin also take a stab at mountain weather predictions).  The forecast was just plain good.  Clouds diminishing, no significant winds.  We packed up low camp and headed for high camp.  It was 2 PM by the time we were roped up and walking toward the fixed lines.  We climbed in a murky world of cloud, between murky layers of other clouds down low and up high.  But we made good and steady progress, reaching high camp at 12,300 ft by 8:30 PM.  We worked to get a camp built and a kitchen going.  At 10 PM we got our first sunshine of the day, which, thankfully kept on beaming down through clearing skies to make dinner and going to bed a lot easier.  Tomorrow could be our big day… Depending, of course on how the weather shapes up and how the climbing team looks at breakfast.

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
