It’s been a whirlwind of activity the past few days for the Vinson team. Congrats to Tom and Lloyd; Tom reached the summit of Vinson Massif and Lloyd topped out on the ridge just below the summit. The team headed back to High Camp, then quickly down to Base Camp. They were trying to stay ahead of a large southern storm brewing to the west, which can shut down operations for days and days. The timing was right and the team flew out of Base Camp, to Union Glacier, then on to Punta Arenas. They enjoyed more air travel last night as they headed back home.
Good work, team, and congratulations!
Thanks to Lloyd for the photos. I promise that’s him under all that down!
