We publish today the first pictures of the camp on the glacier of the Ortler mountain. (See the picture gallery of the base camp)
The particularly favourable meteorological conditions (sun and no wind) have allowed the researchers to work well. Yesterday they were already able to fix the tent over the metal structure that contains the ice perforation system. It was fixed as high as possible and very close to the upper edge of the glacier where, according to the plan, the first ice core will be extracted.
