I got real lucky today. I slogged 3km around the point west of Ulvetanna and entered the Sigynbreen. An hour in the wind sprang up from the NW and I launched my big blue (after an hour untangling a flustercuck) and kited the 20km east to the next mountain range. Just a few tiny crevasses on the far side and then a field of blue ice before finding a nice camp at the base of a pass. In the photo you can see the pass to the left of the kite. I skin up it tomorrow and camp high for a couple of nights so I can do some climbs of local peaks. New adventures every day. Loving this trip.
