In March 2014 another expedition was undertaken, this time with more success. The goal was once more to verify the claim of wooden remains. Another location at approximately 4000 meters was visited and documented, no samples were taken. Although days of extremely bad weather accompanied by heavy snow and winds hindered the expedition it was verified that within a fissure in the glacier wooden planks had been placed against the sides to form what appeared to be walls. Snow and ice that had formed in the fissure made it difficult to see but at least one floorboard was partly uncovered. Furthermore, two pottery vessels were encountered lying on the floor. No specific measurements or description could be made of the vessels as they were for the most part covered by a layer of ice. It was deemed unwise at that time to remove the ice by force in fear of damaging the vessels and losing valuable information.
