British Kangerdlugssuaq 1998

The leader of this team had visited the east coast of Greenland in 1990 and 1992, and the present expedition was to the gap between areas previously visited. The declared intention was 'to explore the area between Redekammen and the south shore of Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord, climbing as many peaks as possible'. Despite only 10 fine days out of 35 in the field, they achieved a tally of 30 virgin peaks - including Redekammen, 2,555m, and Kangerdlugssuaq Tinde, 2,260m - making the expedition a success by anyone's standards.
