Baffin Island 2008


The perfect wall face at the end of the world: expedition to Baffin Island

In April of 2008 Stefan Glowacz and Robert Jasper went on a seven-week journey to Baffin Island to find a wall they weren’t even sure existed. When they arrived at Quernbitter Fjord they found it: a wall rising 700 meters straight out of the ocean. Not only did the wall they found challenge the climbers.

The 340km journey back to Clyde River also let the adventurers face their limits. The route was named “Take the Long Way Home” after the tough journey back to civilization. It is considered to be one of the hardest climbing routes on Baffin Island.
