Schweizerland, Various Ascents. In August and September, 1995, I was a member of the Dresdner Grönlandexpedition to the Angmassalik area (Scheizerland) in East Greenland. We went by self-made boat from Angmassalik-Angmassalikfjord to Tuno Bucht. From Tuno Bucht we traveled by ski and man-hauled sledge through the mountains. Between Roedehorn and including Rytterknoegten we made six ascents (four first ascents) and two attempts on unknown 1200- to 2020-meter mountains. Expedition members were Jan Haink (Leader), Frank Polte and Carsten Daumer.
