Some of the team climbing at the Roaches in the English Peak District
In summer 2013, a team of climbers from the Oxford University Mountaineering Club will partner with a team of sailors to put together a joint sailing and climbing expedition to the West Greenland regions of Uummannaq and Upernavik. The journey will involve sailing nearly 2500 nautical miles and cruising above the Arctic Circle. The climbing will aim for first ascents and adventurous new routes on Big Walls in one of the most recently opened and exciting climbing areas in the world.
