12 January 2015 | Jabet Peak, Port Lockroy
Today we anchored at Port Lockroy and climbed Jabet Peak (540m). Despite the bad weather, we managed to find the summit after a while, and the summit ridge turned out to be really stunning. It was Yves' first mountain climb, and he was smiling like a kid in a candy store.
After the ski down, we spotted our first sea leopard lying lazily on an ice floe, and then visited the Antarctic museum at the British research station. There were about 500 small, cute penguin chicks in the adjacent Gentoo penguin colony.
