5 FA’s in Greenland - Up-Climbing

5 FA’s in Greenland

 The Ragni di Lecco’s (Northern Italy) expedition bagged 5 FA’s in the area of Fox Jaw Cirque, southeast Greenland.
The Fox Jaw Cirque was named  after a 1999 expedition by climbers Dave Briggs and Mike Libecki when they stumbled across an arctic fox and thought it’s teeth resembled the jagged mountains that surrounded them. They first climbed 450 meters Lovin’ All the Right Places (5.10).
On 2007during their 37-day stay Nate Furman, Josh Beckner, Jed Porter, Annie Trujillo, Kadin Panagoulis, and Darcy Deutcher established several new alpine rock routes, culminating in a 17-pitch, 3,000-foot FA on Snaggletooth, Natural Mystic (5.10+) (39 hours of nonstop climbing).  They climbed several of the region’s finest formations, completing six FAs, including two 14-pitch climbs: Beers in Paradise (V, 5.10+, AO), Tears in Paradise, Left Rabbit Ear (IV, 5.10), a demanding climb with a run-out offwidthing.
During 20 days, Ragni di Lecco Simone Pedeferri, Matteo Della Bordella, Lorenzo Lanfranchi and photograph Richard  Felderer first climbed 5 new routes on the beautiful granite’s walls of the area.
