The expedition is now picking up speed with steeper descent down the west side of the ice cap. Yesterday they covered 36 km in good weather conditions. It was the first day at camp where there was no wind and they walked around in their shirts since it was “too hot”. They were at 1,600 meters and planned to do the most of the descent in three days. The last glacier tongue will hopefully be completed on Saturday.
We received photos from Vilborg Arna of the other Icelandic Expedition they met on the glacier a few days back. She gave us kind permission to publish them. You can view them below.
