Angmagssalik Expedition 2022
This expedition’s initial objective was to complete a 25km traverse of several peaks on the west side of Ikasagtivaq fjord. Once underway the team quickly realised that, due to the poor quality of the rock, the full traverse would take 4 days rather than the 3 they had planned. After the weather deteriorated on the second day, they abandoned the attempt and relocated to a cirque of peaks on the opposite side of the fjord. Here, along with repeating a number of existing routes, Rowland and Tietjen also succeeded in the first ascent of a 700m rock route on the West face of Niniartivaraq.
