Vinson Climb - Training at Low Camp

 Our Vinson team has been doing well, having spent two nights at Low camp. They are eating like kings, feasting on fish, pork, hamburgers, and fries. Everything they need to keep the energy high before making the next step up the mountain. Yesterday, they had a skills session, practicing ascending a fixed line and traveling on a rope team. The weather has been good, giving clear views of the mountain valley all around; a stark difference from the flat snowscape of the Antarctic plateau they finished skiing across just a few short days ago. Listen to the audio update from Annie below. It becomes garbled by bad signal half-way through, but you can still get a sense of the energy of the team.
