Hello, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Alpine Ascents Mount Vinson expedition.
Today we moved from Base Camp up to our Low Camp on Mount Vinson. We had a beautiful day, hardly any wind, it was very warm, not many clouds, great views and it took us about 7 hours to head up to Camp 1. We set up tents, and had dinner and now we are in bed.
Tomorrow we are going to take a rest day. Tomorrow for us is New Year’s Eve, so we are excited to take a rest day, do some training in camp for the fixed lines on the steep section between here and High Camp and just enjoy being on Mount Vinson.
It sure is beautiful, we are all having a great time here in Antarctica, we will check in soon.
