The team of explorers led by Ann Daniels, with colleagues Martin Hartley and Charlie Paton, encountered massive rubble fields, fast moving ice, and open water across which they had to swim.

Charlie Paton, of the Explorer Team, said, "One thing that we must always remember is the support teams and equipment suppliers…It's an amazing feat to bring together all the tiny elements of an expedition…If any of these things failed we could end up in serious trouble so we are grateful to all concerned."

Commenting on the support of Solara, Pen Hadow, the Survey Director said: "Solara's excellent data tracking systems for our Ice Base and Explorer teams has been vitally important. Without them we would not have been able to achieve such a successful mission."
