Ejnar Mikklsens Fjord 3308m

The only route so far climbed involves a 1000m ascent up a steep side glacier, involving the negotiation of a large icefall, followed by 500m of a 40-50 degree snow and ice face to reach the exposed summit ridge. Competent and experienced parties only.
Probably the single most dramatic and impressive peak in the Arctic
Large isolated alpine peak surrounded by huge glaciers on all sides
2000m vertical height gain from basecamp to summit
Only two previous ascents up to the turn of the Millennium (1970 and 1998)
Opportunities for long and technical new snow and ice routes on a big peak
An ascent of Borgetinde 3,338m can also be attempted during the same expedition
Many other first ascent opportunities on nearby unclimbed summits
Superb opportunities for exploratory ski- touring
Ideal time to visit - late April to May
