Labrador: The Grenfell-Forbes expedition to northern Labrador led by Dr. Alexander Forbes in the summer of 1931 brought back considerable information on that country and reports a number of climbs in the Torngat and Kaumajet Ranges. In the Torngats, Noel E. Odell, Brewster Morris and Ernest Abbey ascended Tower Peak and another nearby. In August, Messrs. Odell, Abbey, and Hurlbut climbed a peak north of Ekortiafuk while Odell and Forbes ascended another unnamed peak north of Kangalaksiorvik, all being first ascents. In the Kaumajet Range, Odell, Morris, and Abbey climbed both summits of the Bishop’s Mitre and another peak to the west of it, while Odell, Abbey and Harrison Kennard climbed yet another to the southeast.
