Greg called in from Antarctica this morning to report that they’re likely to get off the ice as scheduled. Let’s hope the next phone call we get from Greg and the Vinson team is from South America! All is well otherwise – they’re just killing time. Note: killing time after having summitted is much more fun than the alternative!
Eben called in from their first trekking camp on Aconcagua (Pampa de Llenas), where they’ll enjoy one of the best meals they’re likely to see for some time. It’s IMG tradition to have some asado (grilled beef) the first night on trail. Tomorrow they’ll head up to Casa de Piedra. All is well, though they did report that one of their green peppers didn’t make it.
