British Knud Rasmussen Land Greenland 2003

Knud Rasmussen Land is one of the least visited areas of East Greenland, so gave plenty of scope for this team to explore and make first ascents. They soon discovered that the rock was extremely friable, so as far as possible they kept to snow and ice routes up to Scottish III. Operating from three different camps over a 20-day period and with a wide temperature variation, they made the fIrst ascent of 20 peaks at the eastern end of the glacier, the highest being 2,620m.
