Message from Laura, First Mate on Pelagic Australis:
“So I have just spoken to Skip. They have had a tough day up on the mountains – we knew it must be as we had a lot of snow and wind at sea level, so it would be worse up high. They had hoped to get to Breakwind Ridge camp tonight, but the weather conditions took their toll and they ended up this evening setting up camp halfway down the Crean Glacier.
Skip said they were all pretty tired, but in good spirits, and well settled in for the night. The forecast (for what it’s worth) is good for the next 48hrs so let’s hope they can make better progress tomorrow. I will update you when I know more.”
