In King Edward VII Land, Campbell's second major spring sledging journey set off from Cape Adare for Cape Barrow. Rotten sea ice prevented them from going further. "It was a bitter disappointment," wrote Campbell, "for I had expected at least to be able to get beyond Cape North this way." 
Levick wrote rather more cheerfully, "We as a party have undoubtedly hopelessly failed in our object (exploration) but Priestley and I are settling down to get as much scientific work as possible done, to try as much as we can at any rate to justify our existence."
