Henry Smith Takes on the Mount Vinson Mountain Challenge

Day 8, High Camp to Summit, parts of the route of Mount Vinson are exposed and can be subject to high winds. The summit pyramid can be climbed via two routes. Many teams traverse the peak by climbing the right-hand side and descending the left hand route that is most appropriate to the weather. The views from the summit are breathtaking. Mount Gardner, Tyree, Epperly, and Shinn dominate the foreground, surrounded by impressive peaks that rise from the vast ice sheet below.
