Cambridge University East Greenland 2006

These young students chose a seldom-visited coastal area of the Schweizerland Alps immediately west of the Knud Rasmussen Glacier and 20km south of the Arctic Circle for their first expedition. Travelling to Greenland by normal commercial flights they chartered a boat to reach their selected area. Despite very variable weather conditions which lost them eight days' climbing time, they were successful in making first ascents of eight peaks of up to 1,588m and a repeat of one other peak at grades from F to AD.
