British Lemon Mountains 1993

For three of the the four-man team this was a return to an area of E Greenland visited in 1992. This year they were rewarded with first ascents of Chisel (2,320m), Trident (2,350m), The Beacon (2,262m), The Ivory Tower (2,100m) and The Needle (1,945m), as well as attempts on three other peaks. They also completed a survey of the area using a GPS. The leader sustained a fractured collar-bone (twice!) owing to rockfall.
