The Adventure Guides spent a great day carrying supplies up to the top of the fixed ropes then returning to Low Camp

Hi, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Alpine Ascents Mount Vinson climb with the Japanese group, The Adventure Guides. Today we had a great day.

We just got back from a trip up to the top of the fixed lines. We did a carry with some equipment and deposited our supplies at the top of the fixed ropes and came back down to Low Camp here. Everyone’s doing great. We’re just having some dinner. And either going to take our rest day tomorrow or possibly move up to High Camp. We’ll see what the winds are doing and what the weather is like tomorrow.

But everybody’s doing well. Things are great here on Mount Vinson. We’ll check in soon.
