“Sir Ernest, Wild, Worsley & Self, who comprise a directive Committee, climbed some adjacent hummocks. The prospect was frightfully rough & the surface so soft we sank to our hips — under these conditions with the boats & large party further travel is impossible. The Quorum unanimously agreed to…camp…await the breaking up of the ice.”

— Frank Hurley
