Very exciting news from the Ice. Mike called me late Tuesday to let me know the weather broke and the team was able to put in the ‘first tracks’ for the 2016-17 season to the summit of Vinson Massif. Good weather and ‘relatively’ warm on the summit. The team returned to C2, high camp, and then continued their descent this evening down to C1, low camp, approx. 10,000’. It’s a short move on Wednesday to Vinson base camp and then we’ll see what’s possible regarding flights home. Everyone’s tired, safe and happy.
A big congratulations is in order to Mike and all our team members.
