–from his account “To the South Pole”–
“From a little ridge we crossed immedieately after starting, Bjaaland thought he could see the depot down on the Barrier, and it was not very long before we came in sight of Mount Betty and our way up. And now we could make sure with the glasses that it really was our depto that we saw–the same that Bjaaland thought he had seen before. We therefore set our course straight for it, and in a few minutes we were once more on the Barrier–January 6, 11 p.m.–after a stay of fifty-one days on land. It was on November 17 that we had begun the ascent.
“We reached the depot, and found everything in order.”
