From here, the plan was to be dropped off and climb unclimbed big walls and summits. Gambo, a 40 foot sailboat, is run by Dr Alan hubbard, a professor at Aberisworth university who is running a major Scientiftc investigation to help understand the nature of the water fluxes underneath deglaciating continental-scale ice sheets.
