Hi everybody. I just…I don’t even know where to begin with today’s epic adventure. The long and the short of it is that we have managed to descend almost 1 1/2 thousand meters and 4.6 kilometres. It is one of the steepest glaciers that I’ve ever seen. I can well understand if nobody else has ever been down here and we are the first then I can well understand why and I would well recommend anybody else that comes here to steer well clear of it. The good news is that we are down at sea level pretty much. We’ve been going for 12 hours now and we hurt from head to toe. I mean it’s just been absolutely epic with the culmination right at the end within 60 meter abseil just get off the last cliff face. But, we did it we’re down. Unfortunately Patagonia being Patagonia and all things brilliant. The fact that we’re down at sea level hasn’t help us quite yet. I do believe that this is a very sheer faced glacier at the mouth and the boats won’t be able to come close enough to pick us up. So, we’re actually gonna have to try and find an exit point somewhere else even though there are vertical cliffs all around as you’d expect from the base of the glacier.
So, although we are down at sea level we’re a lot warmer here and the wind isn’t blowing and it’s not howling and we manage to get the tent up, well the sheltered up pretty nicely this evening. But, tomorrow is gonna bring a bit more of an adventure. We got an inkling that there might be a way out, but we wont know until tomorrow.
What else can I report? Katies knees are incredibly sore and her eyes are a little bit better. My frost bite is doing fine and we hurt generally, but we’re incredibly tired but we’re all well. So, fingers crossed we’ll have some better news tomorrow. It might be our penultimate it might not. We might be here for a few more days. We just don’t know yet. But, talk to you tomorrow.
