Isbjorn Diary - by Ash Sethia

"We awoke to the sound of pans being banged together by a frustrated Fire Leader, after all the alarm clocks had failed in their duty that morning (especially after the previous day).
Anyway after a rapid tent poles down and pulk packing session we were ready to attempt an even longer day at a lovely -10ยบ c. We cut the corner of Maritbreen roped up again, which was an interesting crevasse crossing exercise. Herpreet even managed to fall but she was caught by the rope she still had a smile on her face!.
The rest of the day was spent hauling pulks up- the 700m onto the Fimbulisen Plateau, at which point the weather closed in. We eventually went down the glacier on skis with difficulty and made camp."
