World’s first unsupported crossing of the Greenland ice cap by an amputee

'Day 17 ... Journey to the Summit!'

‘Day 17 … Journey to the Summit!’

The team were greeted by a beautiful blue sky and light winds on Day 17 of the World First Record attempt across the Greenland Ice Cap.

They smashed an epic 34.5km in temperatures as low as -28°C.
A tired, aching but very proud team arrived at the summit at 18.50hrs local time!

Peter is now in quite severe pain. His amputated leg is sore and the prosthesis continues to rub but he is determined to finish this incredible journey.

There are still a couple of long, hard days of skiing left before the downhill stretch towards the finish line on the East Coast.

The team would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported Peter throughout this project and helped to make this endeavour possible.
