After some fairly good progress for the last couple of day’s Maxime, Jón Yngvi and the eight Malaysians where forced to stop earlier than expected because of a broken ski-binding. Actually this is the fifth ski-binding to brake and since there where four replacements, Maxime and Jón Yngvi need to find a way to work around it by fixing one of them.
Hopefully this marks the end of series of mishaps.
Since the team has now reached the high plateau of the glacier ski-skins have been taken off which should facilitate some more mileage in the days to come. Weather is treating them fairly with no extremes in wind and precipitation but temperatures have plumed to -35°C (-31°F)
