Ice fog

Thursday 02. August: Today they continued west on the Vestfonna Glacier and onto it’s arm called Forsiusbreen (glacier). This ends Forsiustoppen (summit) after which they descended towards the coast.
Again they encountered very few obstacles as the researched route proved very good. Some three kilometres from the end of the ice they had to negotiate the only tricky crevasse area and further down the melt-zone was swiftly dealt with. Now they are camped at a moraine below the ice some kilometres from the coast. They decided to stop there as dens ice fog took away all visibility.
Tomorrow they will walk out the last bit and then the search and wait for a pickup starts.
