Tuesday 28 January 2020
AC member Simon Yates has made 9 trips to the east of Greenland since his first visit in 2008, resulting in many first ascents in Milneland, The Saven Range, Liverpool Land and the Stauning Alps. He has also climbed in The Watkins Mountains and completed ascents of the three highest peaks in the Arctic (Gunnbjorn Fjeld, Dome and Cone). Most recently, he has made two yacht supported trips to the remote Kangerlussaq Fjord region, where he has found plenty more un-climbed peaks to go at.
