North America, Greenland, Storebror, Trillingerne Group, Tasissarssik Fjord, East Greenland

Storebror, Trillingerne Group, Tasissarssik Fjord, East Greenland. Our expedition was made up of José Ramón Melón I, Albino Quinteiro M, Santiago Suárez A, Antonio Dourardo I and me. We made in August the second ascent of the highest mountain in the region, Storebror (7382 feet). We established Base Camp near the head of the fjord and placed a high camp on the glacier east of the fjord. We advanced some five miles to Storebror along the glacier which lies south of it and climbed its difficult rock-and-ice south face, where we had to bivouac. Some of the climbing was with direct aid. The descent involved 13 rappels and was done in a severe wind storm. We also climbed two minor peaks of 3000 and 4000 feet, some two miles east of the head of the fjord.
