Palup Peak, Upernivik Island, West Greenland. In June, after Giorgio Pettigiani, Enrico Bologna and I had climbed Gauntlet Peak in the Weasel Valley on Baffin Island by the normal route, Pettigiani and I flew to Umanak in Greenland and went by boat to Upernivik Island, where we climbed Palup Peak (2101 meters, 6893 feet) from the Qungulertunsup Glacier, probably a new route up the north face and west ridge.
