War and Poetry: big wall climbing in Greenland

A three day ascent of War and Poetry (VI 5.12c), on the South West face of Ulamertorsuaq in the Tasermiut Fjord, Greenland.

We attempted to team free the line hauling a small pack with minimal bivy gear. Whilst we had to send up the emergency aiders a few times higher on the wall, we free climbed the vast majority of the wall, including most of the harder pitches.

This video details our experience in such a surreal and intimidating place!
