Martin called today to update. The team are all doing fine and are enjoying the novelty of life on Antarctica. They are now at Camp 1 and plan to carry a load up the fixed lines to Camp 2 tomorrow. The weather is due to build tomorrow but shouldn’t stop the team carrying to Camp 2. They will move up to Camp 2 after another night at Camp 1.
