Scottish South Greenland 1999

In 1997 this two-man team attemped a W-E traverse of Southern Greenland (97/15), but had to modify their plans due to bad pack ice. However, that trip served as a very useful reconnaissance, and in fact they cached pulks for this return visit on which they were more successful, with first ascents of four peaks up to 2,300m and the repeat of a peak first climbed on their 1997 visit.
