2002 - Niels Holgersen Nunatakker
Exploration of the unmapped glaciers and summits
of the Niels Holgersen Nunatakker, East Greenland.
NHN is located in the high arctic.
Due to the extremely remote location of NHN, a
series of Twin Otter flights and refueling stops
are required. The team will meet in
Reykjavik, Iceland and then travel via a
commercial flight to Akureyri in NE Iceland.
Here the team will prepare supplies and equipment
to be loaded on to a Twin Otter plane. The
team will then fly to Constable Point located on
the coast of East Greenland. This stop will
enable the Twin Otter to be refueled and link
logistics with other expeditions in order to
reduce transport costs.
The team consists of five climbers from the United
Kingdom and one from the United States. Most
team members have participated in at least one
previous expedition to Greenland.
