Moskus Expedition

The dual approach of this expedition aimed to make first ascents of two unclimbed peaks whilst also conducting climate change research on the Roslin Glacier. Over 10 days they made the initial approach of 150km from Constable Point to Gurreholm Dal. Once established in the area they made two successful ascents and a further two attempts which were thwarted by a high risk of avalanche. They concluded their expedition after being prevented from making any further scientific work by storms which kept them in their tent for four days. Despite this they managed a little analysis on Aries Glacier close to Karabiner Fjell, this involved photographing the glacier and assessing the snowpack level which was found to be much deeper than what was found by previous expeditions in 2017.
