British Mount Asgard 1994

The approach to this 2,011m peak in Baffin Island took so much longer than anticipated that the leader and Jones had to return home before getting to grips with it. The other three, with a lone Catalonian, then climbed the very steep NW face of the mountain in a 12-day push by a new direct route which they named Hyperborea, and graded ABO sup, A4, E3, 6a.
