Scottish South Greenland 1997

This two-man team planned to carry out a ski traverse across the ice cap from Sondre Sermilik Fjord to Narssarssuaq, making one-day first ascents of as many peaks as possible en route. However, bad pack-ice prevented them from accessing Nanortalik, so they used their intended descent route to gain the ice cap instead. This enabled them to cover a large area of unexplored territory and make several first ascents of peaks up to 2,000m and AD—, although they also recorded failure on others due to approach difficulties.
