Walk to 161h

Sat 02 Aug 2008

Having typed in the correct co-ordinates (one digit wrong for last time), Julian led Nial, Jess, Tony and others over the Hinter col, down onto the lower plateau and then left down the steep shelves to the flat out entrance perched on a shelf. Julian brought his oversuit, while Jess and Nial followed in T-shirt and fleece. There was no ice in Iceland. All 3 got to nearly below 161G. Nial said it was quite warm. The crawl inside 161h, which was dug to make the connection was quite tight. Julian split from the group on the way back and went over the ridge behind the Stone Bridge, arriving after 1/2 hr. T/U 20 mins
