We spoke with team leader, Greg Vernovage, last evening. He was calling from high camp on Vinson Massif. All team members reached camp today in good style and in reasonably good weather.
They were just finishing up dinner and getting ready for their summit attempt. Best of all is the forecast. It’s holding good. No way the group will take a rest day now. When the fish are running, it’s time to go fishing. The mountain is providing the opportunity and they’ve put themselves in position to take advantage. When the sun hits the tents, they’ll be up, getting the stoves going for a hot drink and a bite to eat, closing up the tents, getting packs on and heading for the summit. We’ll let you know, when we know, how it all turns out.
