Bad weather and heavy walls

Notwithstanding bad conditions J.E. Nilson ans his team of four manages to cover almost 20 km a day.
Since a couple of days, it's bad luck for the Nilson's Pole2Pole team. First they have to struggle against white out conditions, second they do not cease to slalom between walls of ice all day long. One more difficult to negociate than the following.
All that during the 10 hours progression they do every day. Nilson write on 29 april : "...We are climbing over walls of ice all day long. Tomorrow we hope for a day without wind and with some clear sky!..."
But nevertheless, the moral is high. They have crossed the third degree (degree 86) since the start, they do about 20 km every day and they are heading for the first month on the ice pack.
Their position on 29 April at 1,44pm : 86°52’40” N / 74°34’44” W
