Lanchester Greenland 2001

When this team started planning their expedition to the Northern Lindbergh Mountains, they could have had no inkling that their trip would be affected by the Foot and Mouth outbreak in the UK. But restrictions on the export of food imposed by the powers-that-be caused a number of problems. Nevertheless, with only four days unfit for climbing out of their 23 days in the field, they managed to far exceed their declared aim of climbing 'at least one virgin peak'. They actually climbed 28 peaks between 2,346m and 3,005m, of which 25 were first ascents. They also experimented with 'waste minimisation techniques' that could be of great value to future expeditions.
