Thursday morning: They camped almost by the ice last night. But that was quite an effort. A lot of vertical meters and heavy loads saw to that, event though the went several times.
The last two days have been real stunners. An almost cloudless sky, sink-sakking up the narrow valley on tiny mountain trails, crossing the river a few times with the landscape constantly changing; forest, wild glaciers, lush meadows, strap walls and a blue sky framing it all.
But now they are in the ‘Keyhole’ area, and will be looking for the best possible way onto the glacier and a are route through the crevasse sone at the start. The expect to camp for the first the on ice to tonight.
