How to get there:
The mountain summit is located at 76.23.442 north, 26.20.078 west.
This is a GPS measurement at the summit. Route description:
The mountain has an easy route from the glacier in north-west. Comments:
The ascent on May 19. 2000 was a first ascent. A cairn was built
at the summit. This mountain is among the highest in Dronning Louise
land and the highest climbed by our expedition.
The mountain was quite close to our Base Camp, see pictures below.
Air photo of the Base Camp area with several of the nearby mountains. The picture is taken
from the Twin Otter shortly before landing.
The nunatak furthest to the left (behind the
large mountain to the left) is ICEsoft.
The nunatak furthest out on the icecap to
the right of ICEsoft is Punktum. The
mountain with a snow ridge on this side of Punktum
is TWMC Fjeld. The small nunatak on the glacier
in the middle is Mid-Gletcher, behind it to the
right is Dickens Bjerg. The rounded top
in the foreground (with a patch of snow just
right of its summit) is Cheops.
The Base Camp was located on a line from
Mid-Gletcher to Dickens (but closer to
The white mountain near the icecap and right (north)
of Dickens is Falkoner Klippen, while the rocky mountain just on
this side is Helgoland. The long ridgeline that ends
in a summit directly in front of Helgoland is Hvalross Fjeld.
First cairn built
on Dickens Bjerg. The view is east. Stob Coire an Lochain (2110 m)
(very flat on the north slope)
is the mountain behind the first Glacier. Note the relatively
steep passage right next to the rock ridge.
The darker peak below to
the right was attempted by John Starbuck and Paul,
but not climbed all the way to the summit due to
extremely loose and bad rock. This peak has an impressive
rock wall facing the glacier behind.
