Oxford University Greenland 2006

Using Tangent Expeditions to land them by Twin Otter on a glacier in the Gronau Nunatakker range, these young students undertook a 100km ski traverse (with pulks) of Knud Rasmussen Land to a designated pick-up point. They broke the journey into several sub-sections in order to explore as they progressed. They achieved first ascents of 12 peaks of up to 2,700m by snowlice routes which they graded F to AD.
