Westminster School East Greenland 1972

After initially being delayed in Angmagssalik for more than a week, the team's boat finally arrived and they were transported to Kangderlugssuag. This too took extra time due to the heavier than noraml sea ice. Here they undertook a programme of glaciological and botanical research, with a portion of the team making an inland journey during which they made the first ascent of Mitivagkat (2250m), ascending via a snow gully and the west ridge with difficulties up to Scottish I/II and alpine AD sup.
