Vinson team turned around due to wind

Jacob called again from back in high camp after turning around a couple of hours into the day due to increasing winds.  They gave it a shot, but with the Antarctic temperatures, it doesn’t take much wind to make it way too cold to climb.   They are back in high camp relaxing now, and will rest up for another summit attempt in the next day or two.   They’ve got plenty of time and food, so they’ll enjoy a Christmas dinner at high camp and watch the weather for tomorrow.
