On the Homeward Leg

Published on 15.06.2008 - The TisoTransGreenland Expedition

Alex Hibbert and George Bullard have reached the west coast of Greenland and are back on the icecap again for the return journey.

The descent to the coast was undoubtedly pretty hazardous - according to the snippets of information we get from their website. It seems though that they spent a night on a crevice without realising it. They were unable to reach the coast because access was too dangerous.

In any event, the pair lost no time in going back up onto the polar icecap in order to undertake the return journey. Since they've been skiing in the opposite direction, they've had to contend with headwinds.

On 14 June, they had covered 858 miles, or 1,589 kilometres.
