New Route via Reedy Glacier to South Pole

mountains looming

Another perfect day in paradise. We climbed a few small hills today and gained around 120m elevation for our efforts. To date our efforts haven't been overly taxing, the surface has been excellent and the sleds, although 90kg, glide well over the ice.

We are cutting a corner to gain access to the glacier. There are no crevasse fields marked and none evident, just the usual cracking at the apex of ice rises. You can see our shortcut on the map.

We are starting to get some definition in the mountains, they're looming and in the next couple of days we'll be dwarfed by them. Some of them stand well above 2000m and it's likely that none have been climbed. So much of Antarctica lies unexplored.

20km today.
