North America, Greenland, Cape Farewell Region, Kang Fjord Area, Exploration and First Ascents

Kangikitsoq Fjord Area, Exploration and First Ascents. In August, an Anglo-American team led by Jim Lowther explored the Kangikitsoq Fjord area. This fjord, which was previously unexplored by climbers, lies 25 miles east of Tasermiut Fjord. The team made numerous ascents, including 13 first ascents on 12 unclimbed peaks. Personnel included Britons Jim Lowther, Chris Bonington, John Porter, Rob Fergusson, Scott Muir, and Graham Little, and Americans Mark Richey and Mark Wilford. A full account of their adventures appears earlier in this journal.
