April 14th

April 14th (Day 13)
It’s a beautiful bright sunny morning today and I was far too hot pulling the pulk. I guess it was about -15°, maybe colder, but I had to strip down to just my base layers to keep cool. We all have sun burnt faces from the light levels; right now there is 24 hours of daylight so there is no escape!

During the day we had to go to high ground to find the best way through the rubble - but by 4.30 we still could not see the edge of it.

The journey has been tough on us and on our equipment. Ian has frost bite on one of his fingers which is causing him some pain. We have also bent a number of ski poles and broken an alarming number of bindings – it’s a bit of a worry.
