Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Day 4: The sun was back so another big day planned. We headed back SE across the fjord to a perma-nevé valley adjacent to day 2. Early morning light pretty decent again. This time a 5am start as the temperatures were rising again.

We had to fight for this one: several hours of hiking, skinning and bootpacking to reach our top out at 1138m. The terrain amid the old glacier was pretty awesome: this peak had been carved out by a long-gone ice sheet. For scale, the blip to the right of the snow-rock interface, just above the foreground horizon is Jason skinning up ahead.

Although the peak has most probably seen footfall, the couloir below it certainly hadn't. The only recorded skiers in the valley had been an Italian group who had explored the glacial bowl but not the peaks surrounding it. Team selfie before bagging a first known descent Cool

@offpisteskiing opening the aptly-named 'Christy's Couloir': not steep but one hell of a location.

@Arno enjoying it very much indeed.



A traditional Greenlandic naming ceremony was held that afternoon back at base. It involved a reindeer pelt, a pair of moonboots, a reindeer hoof, a sea eagle skull, a pair of sea eagle talons and some G&T. I daren't provide the photographic evidence.
