East Greenland (Sortebrae) 2007

There have been very few previous visits to Sortebrae by climbers, so this team felt that it would be a good area for an exploratory expedition with the opportunity to make some first ascents. However, unusually warm temperatures had an immediate effect on their trip when the aircraft flying in the first members became stuck on the glacier, taking two days to extract. The second group was therefore landed some 30km away. A number of glaciers received their first visits, and eight peaks up to 2,800m were climbed by routes up to PD+, of which four were first ascents.
