North America, Greenland, Paornqússuit Qâvat Peninsula, Søndre Strømfjord

Paornqússuit Qâvat Peninsula, Søndre Strømfjord. The little range where we sixteen French climbed in 1972 is some 55 miles from the airport above the right bank of the fjord. After placing three camps to reach the heart of the range from the coast, we climbed six virgin peaks. Of these, only P 1850 (6070 feet), the highest point on the peninsula, was interesting from a mountaineering standpoint. Those reaching the summit were Alain Hollette, Joël Chové, Michel Badré, Maurice Nonde, Jacqueline Lance, Dr. Monique Larmoyer and I.
