Vinson Team To Return to Punta Arenas

Mark Ryman just called in from Union Glac­i­er with news that they will be fly­ing off the icy con­ti­nent soon­er than expect­ed. They are hop­ing to be picked up at 2 a.m. tomor­row morn­ing to get ahead of some weath­er com­ing in and will be back in Pun­ta Are­nas, Chile by break­fast time. 

As life at Union Glac­i­er can get some­what mun­dane after days of wait­ing for the flight to take them back to Pun­ta Are­nas, Mark, Jacob, Omar and Scott decid­ed to get anoth­er short climb in while in Antarc­ti­ca. They left out of Union Glac­i­er Base Camp today to sum­mit the 4,757 foot peak Mt. Ross­man. They had a great climb with good weath­er and descend­ed down the left ridge back into Base Camp. Every­one is get­ting excit­ed to return to Chile and con­tin­ue on to their var­i­ous adventures.
