How to pitch a tent on the glacier with one ice-screw.

Just find a glacier with an ice-cave, go inside that ice-cave, place one ice-screw in the ceiling and connect the tent with a rope on the ice-screw, see the picture. :D

This picture is from Spitsbergen at the Tell-glacier. I was drying my two tents inside this ice-cave, which was a great success.

The first tent is a special tent with the inner tent 60cm deeper then the outer tent, to create a lot of space when camping on the snow, while the tent won't catch a lot of wind.

I actually slept in this tent, with the ice-screw  lifting this tent, just for the fun. :D
