Knud Rasmussen Land

Superb exploratory ski-touring and mountaineering up on the edge of the Greenland icecap.
Up to 600m vertical height gain from basecamps to summits.
Excellent views over the icecap to the west and to the high peaks of the Watkins Mountains to the south.
Ideal time to visit - mid May to mid August
Situated on the very edge of the vast Greenland icecap at 69 degrees N these ranges comprise of unclimbed peaks up to 3,000m.

Lying 40kms to the northeast of the Watkins Mountains they represent another logical step in our exploration of the marvellous and vast areas of unexplored peaks and glacier systems that surround the Watkins Mountains.

Unsuitable for mixed climbing due to poor basalt rock.
