Not for the purposes of celestial navigation. Polaris for example. On a round world one can determine their latitude by the elevation of Polaris above the horizon because the two very closely match. Easy Peasy. On a flat world it doesn't work. Because, trigonometry. No matter how high, or low, the dome is.
Trigonometry not only works on a flat world, it is much simpler.

I will ask a pal who is stationed over there. He is a cook but has another job of picking up penguins after aircraft have flown over, they watch the planes and fall on their back and can't get up.
I wonder if he has seen the wall.

These people are cracked. You just know that even if they don't find this ice wall, they'll come out with some bunk about how something or someone was interfering and they didn't reach the wall proper.
I wonder if in the event they do reach Antarctica, will they go all the way around it to verify it's a body of land and not just a wall?

I pray to God that no government or other saboteurs interfere with their journey and this whole thing can be put to rest.
