After staring out at the icebergs of the Weddell Sea three and a half weeks ago we have reached the landmass of the Antarctic continent!!

We covered 24kms today and completed our crossing of the Ronne-Filchner Ice Shelf. As we crossed the line of 82 degrees South we also took our first steps on land. After a week on the flat ice shelf the snow beneath our feet began to slowly rise upwards and we began our climb towards the Pensacola Mountains. We should reach the Wujek Ridge in two days. Late in the day today the cloud descended, the mountains disappeared and we were left navigating by compass. We are hoping that the cloud clears for our ascent of the Wujek Ridge. Otherwise we may lose a few days travel waiting for a weather window to safely ascend through the mountains. It’s a great day and we’re excited to finally be on the landmass of Antarctica. We have made our dream come true and we are incredibly thankful to our entire support team, sponsors, our family and friends that have believed in this journey and encouraged us on.
