Tom, Jacob and Peter at the summit of the NW peak of Uummannaq Mountain
In summer 2013, Tom, Ian, Jacob and Peter, a team of young climbers from the Oxford University Mountaineering Club, partnered with Clive and Angela, two experienced sailors to mount an expedition to West Greenland. The aim was to set new routes on previously unsurmounted rock faces high above the Arctic Circle. Some 9 weeks, 2500 nautical miles, and uncountable breathtaking moments later, the team have arrived home safely and far exceeded their objectives.
