Ascent Trip Report

Back from the field for a short stay in McMurdo. LC-130 was delayed today out to Siple Dome, so I ran up again.

A bit socked in to the North and low clouds were obscuring part of Mt. Discovery and the Royal Society Range. Nice views of Black and White Island though.

Definitely could feel the lack of Aerobic exercise while camping out on the Ross Ice Shelf for 3 weeks.
