This Vinson Expedition was a total blast! I want to thank all of the climbers for making our “New Years on the Ice” a success. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many teams while guiding for IMG and I have to say that this team was a good as you can find. This team represented IMG and themselves proudly. We made our carries, worked hard to build our camps, and each time we did it as a team.
The teamwork that each member showed, and the support that each member gave each other day in and day out, was observed by every climber on the mountain. After arriving at High Camp and working together to build camp and do chores, another climber gave applause while stating that “Now, you will have a rest day.” We replied proudly by saying: “Nah, if the weather is good we are going to the summit tomorrow.” And as you can see form the great video Paul Pottinger put together, we had a great summit day!
It is easy to work hard for a team that has a great attitude and helps each other. Aaron Mainer and I are honored to have been part of this great team.
Congratulations to all members of the Team!
