Vinson Team back down to Base Camp

The team descended from high camp this morning, stopping at Camp 1 to pick up some gear and put on their skis for the descent to base camp.   They had a long couple of days, reaching the summit on Friday, then the big descent on Saturday, so they are going to take some well deserved rest this afternoon.   They’ll fly back to the main Union Glacier base on the next flight, and then wait for the big flight back to Chile.   They are hoping to be back in the next couple of days!

Here’s Joe from base camp:
