Another view of the erratic
boulder in the last picture. Standing on the
left hand side the corner came about up to my chin,
so around 1.5m high and bigger that that in the other
dimensions, so it's a big 'un!
This was my first introduction
to the clear air and difficulty in judging distance in Greenland.
I had seen the boulder on the crest of this ridge from down
in the valley in front where the lakes are. I had walked
up to the top of the top lake but still had quite a lot
of time and energy left, so this seemed a reasonable target
to reach so I could see into the next valley but without
any major climbing. Anyway - about 2 hours and lots of huffing
and puffing later I got there, I wasn't sure how far away
it was, but I certainly didn't anticipate that!
Actually the target was to
climb up and stand on top of the boulder with hands in the
air while turning round - which I did, but being on my own
don't have a photo of this.
