Sea, Ice and Rock

Sea, Ice and Rock
After meeting on the TV programme “The Krypton Factor”, the authors of this book pooled their abilities on a light-hearted sail to Skye to climb the Cuillin Ridge. The Greenland expedition was something much more ambitious. First Robin had to nurse his famous wooden yacht through the enclosing icebergs of Watkins Fjord. Then Chris had to sort out a map discrepancy to identify the mountains they had come to climb. In the end it proved more demanding than expected and they had to turn back 200m below the true summit. But their narrative revels in the exciting climbing potential of the underexplored East Greenland and provides an account of how two very different men discovered a new dimension of adventure.
