Skiing Trinity Island

06 January 2015 | South Trinity Island
We got up, prepared everything and did a first outing in "real" conditions, with a lot of the gear, the pulkas etc.

We climbed the highest point of the south part of Trinity Island (540m), so to speak as a "warm up" for what's to come... Everything is so big here, everything is gigantic, the rocks, the ice shelf, the glaciers and the view over the Antarctic ocean - except the penguins: they are small and sweet and cuddly: Today when we got down 3 Gentoo penguins (different than the Chinstrap ones we knew from Deception Island) came to say hello...
Early tomorrow morning we'll take off from here back over to Cape Andreas on the Peninsula and head out on our first 4 day expedition into the ice with Langley Peak, Boulton Peak and some other mountains to climb. We are well prepared with food and gear, are slightly anxious, but are looking forward to get going for real...

We'll get back to you once we're back on the boat in about five days.
