Editorial Reviews

Capture the thrill & excitement of the unknown in one of the few places left unexplored on the planet. Journey to the Arctic and travel with Peter Clutterbuck and Paul Walker as they lead an eight person expedition to a group of unnamed, unmapped and unexplored mountain ranges near the Kangerdlugssuaq region of East Greenland. This story begins with the training and preparation for the expedition, including crevasse rescue practice. The area is so remote that the only way in was via a ski plane from Iceland. Once the crew land on the glacier, base camp was set on the edge of the two mile thick ice-cap. The team completed eight first ascents with some steep ice climbed using ice axes, ice screws, crampons and other hi-tech gear, mostly under the midnight sun. Extreme weather conditions and a large storm prevented the team from getting airlifted out, but the ski plane did eventually come back to take them safely off the glacier. This documentary captures the feel of how to live on the icecap and the intricacies of hauling sledges, front pointing up steep ice and installing protection on the ice faces. Above all, the story captures the thrill and excitement of the unknown in one of the few places left unexplored on the planet.

The video is somewhat interesting and shows some beautiful scenery but the level of adventure is relatively mild compared with other videos of mountaineering…except for the complete remoteness of the location. The video editing is amateur but reasonable for a low budget endeavor. Some of the scenes are quite beautiful. BUT, someone should have learned a little more about audio editing before releasing this video. The dramatically louder audio during scenes with skis crunching over snow and stoves boiling water nearly made me turn it off. Have your volume control handy!

A group of British climbers ski in and bag nunataks in SE Greenland. The quality of the film is about what you'd expect--this is not Hollywood. Excellent footage of the area and the skiing/climbing. For those contemplating a trip, this is a good primer.
