Peter Whittaker Calls In Before Vinson Summit Attempt
Posted on January 10, 2011

Audio transcript:

“Hey everyone, Peter here, checking in. It is the 9th of January, and it’s about 9:30 p.m. We are up at High Camp. We moved up the fixed lines today and got up here in good style.

Seth is in the cook tent right now brewing us up a hot drink, and we’re gonna grab a quick dinner and then head down, or actually bed down for the evening. It’s beautiful up here right now. I’m sitting on this rock ridge ,and Jake just came over and took a couple images that he’s gonna try and push out, and hopefully you’ll be able to look at when you’re listening to this dispatch.

It’s just beautiful. I’m sitting on the ridge looking down. I can see our Camp 1. I can see base camp and looking out to the horizon is just totally clear. It’s surreal. It’s unbelievable. It’s beautiful up here and the team is strong. Everyone’s doing well. This First Ascent Eddie Bauer, RMI trip is just going super smooth and we think that we’re gonna summit tomorrow, January 10th. I may try and get a call off in the morning before we head out. The weather forecast is good. We are at 12,000-almost-500 feet and we’re going up over 16[000] tomorrow. But spirits are high, team is healthy. And with a little luck we should be standing on top tomorrow. That’s it for now. Thanks.”
