Description: Robert Burton and Kathleen Cartwright established this intermediate camp by the Sorholts-Hus, built by a Norwegain Trapping Company in 1954. To the west of the huts they had passed by a sandy cliff colonised by arnica and willow herb. Bobert and Ian Blisland took the Zodiac back to Revet after tea to collect fuel from the depot, but did not return, having experienced low tides preventing them from launching the boat for the return journey.
