Video: War and Poetry – Climbing Big Walls in Greenland

Greenland is one of those raw, untamed countries that inspires the idea of a big adventure simply by uttering its name alone. This video takes us to this sprawling, wild country with a group of climbers who set off to make a three-day ascent of a route called War and Poetry (VI 5.12c) on the South West face of Ulamertorsuaq in the Tasermiut Fjord. The expedition was one that went light and fast, free climbing the massive wall along the way. But the story is more than just overcoming the mountain itself, with a sense of adventure pervading the entire expedition.
