It’s a Long Way to the Top

Arctic Ice

Reaching the North Pole isn’t as easy as we had hoped.

A strong southern current is pushing the ice while we sleep, so each morning we are waking up further from our target than the day before.

Then the are the pressure ridges and water streams that make it impossible to ski in a straight line.

But the good news is the Yellowbrick V3 MkII is performing well so our exact position is being updated every hour.

Our fingers may be freezing, but we know we are safe as we start retracing our steps northward once again.

These conditions are harsh on equipment, and we’ve had quite a bit of kit fail – but the Yellowbricks have never skipped a beat, they’re as tough gear gets.
