The team reported in this afternoon after a VERY long day on the trail. After almost 10hrs of travel in "abysmal" conditions, they made it to the Grimsfjall Hut where they will have a well-earned rest from the wind, sleet, and eye-straining zero visibility outside. They will rest and recuperate for the next 36hrs (starting with pesto pasta and breadsticks tonight) before heading farther across the glacier.
The Grimsfjall Hut is home to a geothermally heated wet sauna, so hopefully the team will be able to take advantage of that to soothe the chill in their bones.
A huge congrats to the team after a long day today. The kind of day that, in this industry, we call "an epic".
Stay tuned for more tomorrow.
