Day 24, 27/11/07 - Patagonia Northern Icecap

2:15am weather check; weather was too bad to make the ascent onto the glacier. Last night the weather was exceptionally windy & the tent took a battering. It was a strange feeling because every time a gust hit it was like someone kicking you in the back forcing all the trapped sleeping bag warmth to disippate; making your body ice cold in an instant. Our tent pitch here was so nice that it really wasn't any hardship to stay another day (sure that was an East 17 song!).
