Schweizerland, East Greenland. Our Catalan expedition was composed of Nuria Pares, Pep Bisquert, Miquel Autet, Angel Serra, Montse Riesco and me as leader. We left Kulusuk on August 3, ascended the Karale Glacier to the September 16th Glacier and went back to the sea by the Knud Rasmussen Glacier. After two days on moraine, we skied and pulled pulkas. We got to the September 16th Glacier by crossing the Slangen Pass. On August 13, we climbed a peak at the southeast junction of the September 16th and Knud Rasmussen Glaciers at 66°14'N, 36°08'W. We skied to the sea down the left side of the Knud Rasmussen Glacier, which was dangerous because of crevasses and a river running down its center.
