Mike Hamill call in via satellite phone on the afternoon of November 25 to report that the team had moved to high camp on Vinson – approx. 13,000 ft. Knock on wood – the entire team did a great job and the weather remained great. It’s no small thing to have all 7 of our members doing so well. Mike reported calm conditions at high camp. It’s still darn cold at this time of year but not having to fight wind is huge.
Today may well be summit day. All depends on the weather. It can be cold but it just can’t be too windy. Chances for frostbite are much greater if the wind is blowing hard. We won’t know until late today but check in with the IMG blog tomorrow for news.
