Mount Forel, Greenland Expedition

Bad weather caused Derek Fordham and his party to alter their plan for a ski approach to Mt. Forel (3,360m) N of Angmassalik, in favour of landing by air on the N side of the mountain. Attempts on the SW ridge and NE flank were abandoned some 200-300m below the summit owing to high winds. They then skied 135km to the W in 7-8 days, being picked up at the snout of the Knut Rasmussen glacier.
