Pushing up through the Keyhole and towards the beautiful Icecap

Day 8-10, Tuesday: Thomas arrived back at Lake Bertrand early Sunday morning and with the wind down was able to cross the lake. They then got the horses needed surprisingly fast and set off up the valley. They reached the camp late in the day and soon after started the descent with Bill. His back pain had eased off a bit which must have been quite a relief with a tough horse ride and long drive in front of him. Early Tuesday morning they were back in Coyhaque!
Thomas had brought some fresh bread and cheese (etc?) so we suspect the rest of Sunday was for eating and enjoying themselves. Monday dawned with superb weather and they used the first hours to dry everything and then moved the camp up through the Keyhole and onto the glacier. But they did not have time to return down and pick up the last bits from when they were forced back by the wind.
Tuesday was a disappointment as it rained cats and dogs. That was not part of the plan, but they duly collected the last bit and got themselves ready for skiing. The weather is supposed to change again during Wednesday and then a high pressure period should follow. If this proved correct they should get some stunning days later in the week.
