Ketil, South Greenland. A strong four-man Austrian team from Lienz under the leadership of Siegfried Girstmair spent three weeks in June and July on the Tasermiut Fjord area. In very fine weather they were able to repeat the 1974 Austrian route on the south face of Ketil Fjeld (2010 meters, 6595 feet) in two days of climbing (UIAA V to VI difficulty). They also made a new route on the east face of Kirkespiret on the western side of the fjord and a three-day ski trip onto the inland icecap.
