Today we reached the top of the worlds second highest ice cap, 2493 metres above mean sea level. White out conditions, we were tumbling around, seeing nothing. Bad weather,the wind-forces increasing rapidly, it was snowing all the time. Because of this, we camped early in the afternoon, using 4 hours bulding big snow-walls, trying to put up the tents. It was extremely hard doing so and three tent-sticks broke down. In the evening the wind-force was calming down a bit and a flock of birds suddenly appeared from nowhere. The gale is back again, turning around 180 degrees. As a result of this, the wall we were building is now behind the tent! Mads, our meteorology expert (frivind. no), has sent us weather forecasts for the next 48 hours, predicting windy weather and low temperatures. Because of that we probably have to stay here so far. But luckily it´s warm and nice inside our tents.
