Knud Rasmussen Land, first ascents. A team of young British climbers (average age 25) completed 16 ascents of previously unclimbed peaks in the West Knud Rasmussen Land, ca 40km northeast of the Watkins Mountains. From June 13 to July 22 Richard Fallows, Chris Jones, Tim Rogers, and I climbed peaks up to 3,085m in altitude and with difficulties up to PD+. We also completed ca 150km of ski touring.
