For the climate researchers, many areas in the Patagoan ice sheet are still unknown places and can hardly be reached. A young German scientist who has been cooperating with Chilean scientists for years has now ventured on a unique project. Together with the best-known German mountaineers Robert Jasper and Jörn Heller, he dared an extreme expedition in which the weather was the greatest enemy. Only the construction of a snow cave saved them from a great catastrophe. At the same time, another catastrophe is taking its course: the changes caused by climate change in the Patagonian ice sheet are more dramatic than previously assumed.
