The Rainbow Summits Project

Mt. Vinson – Day 5

After several days on the move, we were all looking forward to a rest day. Unlike other mountains where rest days involve outdoor activities, snowball fights, or other distractions like that, we all remained in our sleeping bags for most of the day. The sun spent much of the day hidden behind thick clouds and it’s pretty hard to motivate oneself to leave his or her sleeping bag in temperatures like that.

We had three large meals and played several games of cards as well as sharing music and climbing stories. We hit the sack early in preparation for the next couple of days…a move up to High Camp tomorrow and then hopefully a Vinson summit the day after.
