Milne Land, probable first ascents. Between May 8-16 David Cook and Simon Turner, guided by me, climbed seven peaks on Milne Land. We were taken to the island from Constable Point by Skidoo, across the sea ice of Scoresby Sund, but had to be helicoptered out because of melt. We established base camp 10km from the coast on the Charcot Glacier, east of the icecap. Subsequently, we placed an advanced base higher up the glacier. The peaks we climbed were generally straightforward ski ascents.
