Upernivik Island. West Greenland. The expedition sponsored by the Milan section of the Club Alpino Italiano visited Upernivik in Umanak Bay, 72° N. Lat. The eight members were G. Della Torre, leader, T. Albani, A. Di Benedetto, G. Farassino, A. Villa, S. Colombani, Dr. A. Rusconi, and P. Magni. No very difficult climbs had been made previously in this area. The Italians, during a month, made fifteen first ascents and explored a large part of the island. Five of the climbs were very difficult.
