Jim and David (shirtless, whooa!) take a break, eat and change into extra wetsuit tops in the NW dome before tackling the way on to the Asia dome. The tent in the background was left as a rewarming tent from the 1990 survey to the Asai dome.

Jim warms one hand over the sterno while drinking a hot orange drink. Warming up after a couple of hours surveying and a few thorough soakings (in the bering sea, the baffin ear dip and the lie back connection). Near “N Korea” (station 5Y).
David (closer) and Jim heading back along the “stomping” passage after. (Taken from around station YC26, station YC25 is on the wall obscured by David.)
The “hornets nest” formation (W side of passage; station YC23 on mud bank below the formation).
