Digging for Food

Isbjørn and Polarrev join forces, with some climbing on Hyperittfossen and some ascending local peaks. Rype pulk to Base Camp 3 the hard snow on the Gronsteinfjellet slopes made it hard to control the pulks even walking down. They have a tedious six hours of searching for the food cache in the gully behind Base Camp 3. It is eventually found after much searching by avalanche probe and digging, around 3m under the surface snow. Still, cloud to sea level, +4ºc.
