North America, Greenland, Schweizerland, Various Ascents

Schweizerland, Various Ascents. It was reported that an Italian expedition of Luigi Airone, Paolo Cavagnetto, Fabio Jacchini, Ercole Passera, Allessandro Quagliolo and Cesare Racaschietto skied from Tasilaq with 100-kilo pulkas to the mountains around Tupilak in June, making three possible new routes. On June 13, they climbed Dia Pero (TD+, 6c), a 600- meter route on an unnamed pyramid (ca. 1700m). On top the remains of a German tetropack were found. On June 16, Pilastro del Centenario (TD, 6a, 900m) on the east-southeast ridge of Rodebjerg (2140m) was climbed in ten pitches; an empty aspirin bottle was found on top. On June 18, the team climbed Sedna (ED2 6c A2+) in 15 pitches during three days. Ropes were fixed to the top of pitch 9; the route appeared to be the first ascent of an unnamed pyramid (ca. 1700m).
