3 months of madness in Greenland

Big walls and big icebergs

Favresse Nicolas

We are slowly adjusting back to the normal life after 3 months of madness in Greenland... This was definitely one of our wildest adventure so far. But don't worry we are already thinking of wilder things :)

The combination of sailing and climbing was perfect except for a few meals wasted overboard ! On the other hand it kept us light for the climbing;) The atmosphere of sailing through huge Icebergs was absolutely incredible and being able to climb virgin big walls right off the sailboat in such a wild place felt unreal.

We filmed the whole adventure with two small HD Camera so Yes... We are planning on making a movie about this. Just be patient because 60h of raw footage will be lots of work for people of the wild like us;) Sean is actually the main editor of our future movie. We'll keep you updated with our progress.

Here finally are the details of the routes we put up.

Generally the climbing in the Upernavick area was very adventurous with lots of grass in the cracks, thick lichen and seagulls vomiting on us, and walls that starts straight out of the water but the rock was really good quality (under the grass). It made it very challenging to climb onsight, dig the grass for pro (getting covered with dirt) fighting with the seagulls and dealing with lichen friction holds. Any pitch was always a real challenge!

In The south (Cape farewell area) it's a more alpine environment with mountains and glaciers covered with granite spires. The rock is really clean with perfect cracks. Certain routes we put up were so clean we could have never tell it was a FA or a 50th repeat. It was a nice contrast after the adventures in Upernavick area.
