This overview provides an overview of peaks in Queen Louise Land.
The climbing history of each peak is outlined.
Each expedition to this area is required to file a report with the
Danish Polar Center, unfortunately, many expeditions do not report on
their mountaineering activities. This should have been a requirement by
the Danish Polar Center, to benefit all future visitors to the area.
In particular, the commercial tour operators (noteably Tangent and Hvitserk) do
not file reports.
It is, in my opinion, rather questionable if these parties can claim first ascents of peaks, and then deliberately not publish the location and route climbed. If everything had been reported to the DPC, then that library would have been a valuable source of information. I visited this library in the winter of 2004, unfortunately, there is quite limited information available.
Please send email with additional information and or corrections
to: firstname.lastname@example.org, this may then develop into a source of information
that is available to any interested party.
More peaks will be added as information is received.
Below, peaks are listed sorted by elevation. Location, primary factor and first ascent
information is given, a link for each mountain may then point to more extensive information
related to climbing history and other facts.
