Nuuk Fjord

After 3 days in Nuuk we headed out inland in search of climbing in the 50 mile Fjord behind Nuuk. We anchored initially in the S bay on Storø 15nm from Nuuk . This spot we read of in the RCC arctic pilot and proved to be a brilliant anchorage with jaw dropping views and tonnes of climbing potential. We settled for an easier slabby route 7 pitches at an approximate grade of HVS. It is hard to impress the scale of this place, everything is big. Huge in fact. Our first new route in Greenland: The North Atlantic Bakeoff HVS 7 pitches starting with easy slab climbing leading to steeper crack systems with climbing easily as good as any classic Cornish VS. Solid rock and good gear. The ground becomes less steep above and rock quality deteriorates we scrambled down to the right of the line to escape.
