Rothera, Antarctica

As long as I’m not on met duty then we get Saturday afternoon and Sunday off. The weather has been incredible these last few days, not a breath of wind, and clear blue skies- perfect for some summer winter climbing. I went out with Scott (another one of the wintering field assistants) up to a mixed route on Reptile ridge. I’m really glad we did it because in a couple of days there’ll be no more ice, and it gave me a great taster of what’s in store this winter.
