Henry Smith Takes on the Mount Vinson Mountain Challenge

Day 7 Henry and the team will make the summit attempt on the best weather day possible based on the forecasts predicting good visibility and low winds. High camp to Mount Vinson’s Summit is 3,648 ft (1112 m) of elevation gain and takes 9-12 hours round trip. The majority of the route is along the gently angled Vinson summit valley, with a short, steeper snow and ice slope leading to the spectacular, rocky summit ridge.
