Greenland trip day 12: Rest day

After yesterday's longer tour the other members of the group needed a rest day, so we spent the day doing a bit of learning and resting.

John walked us through various modes of moving on a rope in alpine terrain and gave some tips for alpine belaying. After lunch (quesadillas!) G and A walked up the side of the valley a bit to see if some of the slabs we can see from camp are climbable (yes) and can be protected (no).

We learned some good stuff, but it would have been nicer to use the good weather and do a tour.

The campsite really is spectacular

moving on the rope basics

No, the climbing gear isn't necessary for fetching water

Amazing what you can do with good boots on good rock
