Some details from the climb of Piteraq
During the climb in Camp 1 and 2 we had rain, but only at night. Some days and nights we had heavy wind, which made the sleeping feel like sleeping in a bad train driving too fast on very bad rails. The portaledges had to be tied down.
The quality of the rock on Ulamertorssuaq:
Generally the lower half of the wall is good rock, but there are places with not so good or totally rotten rock. The granit in the upper part is just perfect.
