Ice School at Barne Glacier

Shown here is the Barne Glacier with Mt. Erebus in the background. This ice tongue is emerald green, extremely hard and extremely cold–a poor choice for ice climbing. The Barne Glacier is located on the west side of Ross Island between Cape Evans (location of Scott’s Hut) and Cape Royds (location of Shackleton’s Hut) about 20 miles north of McMurdo Base. We have just finished a climb of the hightest point on Tent Island which is a remnant of an old crater, now partially submerged. Stay tuned…DSC_0086_1.JPG
