Hello from Mount Menzies, the tallest peak (at just under 3300 m) in the Prince Charles Mountains. We have been here for two weeks now, and what an eventful two weeks it has been! We are around 700 km South of Davis, and our camp is at an altitude of 1600 m. We are the first people to visit Menzies since 1998, and probably the only humans in a 600 km radius. Camp put-in went very smoothly, with all three loads arriving on consecutive days, thanks in no small part to the hugely experienced Twin Otter pilot Bob.
