Tuesday 18th May
The weather finally cleared today and the group are traveling this evening from their main base camp towards their pick up point at the foot of the Age Nielsen Glacier. There has been a lot of new snow so the going will be quite slow and hard work.

After a long hard slog the team have arrived at a new base camp just 3 km away from their pick up point. They will set up camp at this position for the night and travel down to the sea ice tomorrow morning for a collection by dog sled and snowmobile at 11.30 tomorrow morning.
