Sunday November 8th I took a hike to Castle Rock with Chris Kenry who is a planning support coordinator for the ASC. Castle Rock is a well known landmark on Ross Island, and one of the places where we can safely do an extended hike. Early in the season the route is checked with ground penetrating radar for crevasses, then flagged. We did an 8 mile up and back hike, but it is possible to do a longer loop hike which ends up at New Zealand’s Scott Base. Next time.
