Antarctica, Queen Maud Land, Overview

Publication Year: 2012.

Overview. Experienced Antarctic climber Patrick Degerman made his second visit to the area, climbing several minor peaks in the Wohlthat Massif with a fellow Finnish partner. The most well-known figure of Queen Maud Land climbing, Ivar Tollefsen, returned again with a Norwegian team to the iconic spire of Ulvetanna. Their flight was delayed by a week, and the remaining two weeks of unstable weather allowed no success on the east face, the steepest, coldest side of the mountain. Unsurprisingly, he plans to return.
