A stunner of a day

Published 01.08 in category Nordaustlandet

Tuesday 31. July: A great day with sun and breeze from north-west. After some zigzag’ing to tread their way through the lower part of the icefall they swiftly dealt with the melt-zone this time, and headed up. The breeze dropped the temperatures and later in the day the snow hardened up with some drift snow giving excellent skiing conditions. This gave them 20km by camp as the reached the plateau at the Vestfonna glacier at roughly 600m. Depending on the conditions they should have 2 or 3 days left till the coast.
