Summit day on Vinson

Summit day on Vinson. We climbed a new route from the north, but joined the normal route above their high camp.

The photo is taken on the normal route in the "high valley" leading past several summits towards Vinson itself, the summit is in the centre of the picture.

The standard route goes round to the left, then turns and comes back along the left skyline ridge to the top. The ridge isn't steep at any section, a trekking pole is sufficient.

ANI have a stretcher and emergency supplies in the rocks at mid-left.

Photo taken: 29 Dec 2008.
