Vinson: Team V5 back in Punta Arenas

Hello friends and family, this is Jangbu and Ari reporting for Alpine Ascents Vinson V5 team. The team made it back to civilization at Punta Arenas this morning.

We had an early morning flight from Union Glacier Camp to Punta Arenas. Some of our team members were able to change their flight and went back home this afternoon. Rest of us are gonna be in town for few days before we all head back home. Thanks everyone for following us along the way to journey to climb Mt Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica. We all had an amazing time on this expedition, we had great experiences with weather on this trip and never going to forget this memories.

I personally would like to thank every member of our team for being a great member of this expedition and would like to wish everyone for their future endeavors. Thanks everyone again for following along the way and wanna make call that this would be the last post for our Vinson V5 team for this season.

Guide team,

Jangbu & Ari
