Underway!!! Finally! After months of preparations, the team has left from Kangerlussuaq and started climbing the icefall on the west side of the Greenland Icecap. The team this year is made up of Rob, Piotr, Ginny, Kieran, Andre, Robby and Jose. Together with Bård Helge and Sebastian.

Day 2, 10th May 2017.

Headed east! We were transported to point 660 last night and put up camp as soon as we had carried all our equipment onto the ice. This morning we started walking at 08:00 and made 6 legs during the day. Hard surface in the morning, turning to wet and heavy snow during the warm day. Clear sky and sunshine was very nice on the expedition’s first day. We are close to the top of the lower part of the icefall and looking forward for smoother terrain during tomorrow!

This afternoon we are celebrating Andre’s birthday and enjoying a long afternoon, before starting tomorrow at 7.

Cheers from Bård Helge and the team!
