Wednesday morning / Day 4: Yesterday was another very hard day as they continued climbing through the Triangle area and into Valley of Silence. Wind from earlier days have almost erased the trail from the previous expeditions so it was tough. But another 12km and 560 metres up mean they are nearing the end of the Axel Heiberg Glacier and a god day today may see then round the Engelstad Mountain and climb over the brow! It may, the wind is very strong with a chilling -30°C up on the plateau – so we’ll see.
