My phone vibrated at 6am under my pillow. A good morning to Heath and Fred in my tent then a call out to Paul and Jade next door got the stoves firing and we soon had a big breakfast bomb in our bellies.

On the ice by 8.15 we hauled up on crampons through the complex maze of ice ridges, gullies, creeks and pools, taking some dead ends but overall making progress upward, toward the plateau of Greenland.

Our sleds are heavy, Heath's around 100kg, a consequence of our objective of filming this expedition.
One doesn't often complain of heat on a polar trip but here we are steaming and sweating, slathering sun cream on and skiing with peak caps and thermals. I'm itching for the cold of the plateau.

We covered just 4.5km as the crow flies, and yesterday 2.5, but it was hard won distance and we lie on our mattresses tired and happy.
