The Adventure Guides reached the summit with views as far as the eye can see!

Hi, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Alpine Ascents Japanese Team on Mount Vinson, from Adventure Guides.

We just reached the summit of Mount Vinson! And we have a beautiful day up here, clear skies; you can see as far as the eye can see and there’s no wind at all here on the summit, a little cold, a little brisk. But we’re doing great! And we’re really happy to be up here.

Everyone did a great job getting up. And we’re going to head down soon after a few photos here on the summit. But everyone’s doing really well. Really proud of the Team today. And we’re going to head down, probably going to get back to Camp in a few hours.

All good here on Mount Vinson. We’ll check in soon.
