We heard from Guy today via satphone and they had an excellent first day on the trek. Everyone in the group is doing well and they covered 10km, with the temperature staying around -33 degrees C all day and a light breeze. The challenges of fogged goggles freezing and being vigilant about all the minor things are taking up most of their time but all are rising to the challenge. Last night in the tents was quite warm as the ‘sun’ was out but for tonight’s sleep they expect it to be colder as cloud cover is forecast.
More news from the team tomorrow.
