Vinson December 4th Team – Weather day at low camp

Jacob called to let us know that the team couldn’t move up the route to high camp today, as the upper mountain was buffeted by high winds.  The team enjoyed a relatively warm day in the sun, but they could see the wind howling up above.  A couple of climbers did push up and radioed down that it was wholly unpleasant up at the next camp.

Everyone is in great spirits, and took advantage of the day to eat, hydrate and pare down their kits in preparation for the big day moving up to high camp.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the winds slacken a bit so they can move up to a room with a new view tomorrow.

Here is Nungshi Malik, calling in from the Branscomb Glacier, in Antarctica:
