The team called in to report a successful summit of Mt. Wood at 3:10 pm yesterday. Lonnie Dupre and Pascale Marceau are now the first people to have summited this peak in winter. Pascale is the first woman to ever make an ascent of a high subarctic peak.
"The beauty of such firsts lies in their unknowns. There is no standard route. There are no prescribed landing zones and the condition of the glaciers is always changing," said Marceau.
Despite the odds, the brutal winds, heavily crevassed ice fields and extreme cold, the team spent 13 hours making their way to Mt. Wood’s summit of 4,850 meters (15,912 feet).
“The weather is bad and the descent that we have ahead of us now is the most technical part of the climb,” Dupre reported from 11,000 feet.
Stay tuned for more updates as the team descends and reports in with more audio and images from the expedition.
