North-South Greenland: Phase I

Time constraints have prevented this team from tackling its ambitious project - a N-S Greenland traverse - in a single year, so the journey has been divided into two (unequal) phases. The fIrst one, of 680km between Sangmilek Fjord (near Angmassalik) and Narssarssuak was completed in 35 days during which time the team reached a maximum altitude of 2,800m. Phase Il, scheduled for 1996, will start in the north of the island and finish 1,800km later at Angmassalik.
