During our three nights at the Narsarsuaq Hostel we meet Knud Falk and Søren Møller who manage the site Vandrefalk.dk. Knud and Søren are researchers studying peregrine falcons in South Greenland, and have been conducting field work for over 30 years in the area. I asked them for advice on good vantages, and they gave many suggestions, including this viewpoint Qaqqarsuatsiaq.
Overall this is a very pleasant ramble, starting with a walk along the scenic road towards Nunataaq. After passing numerous picturesque lakes, I branched off towards the prominent high ridge on my right. There was a little route finding on the way up this East-facing aspect, and the view from the top was all-encompassing. Heading down along the open ridge to the West, I was thinking to myself that this is one of the most pleasant hikes I have ever done, and then I was snarled in dwarf willow for what felt like an hour. In retrospect I should have continued my descent into the town of Nunataaq, before linking up with the marked path to Tasiusaq, but I tried to intercept the path midway between the two towns; this is where I had my dwarf bushwhacking adventure!
Upon arriving in Tasiusaq I immediately bumped into Lizzy Scully, a climber from Colorado who I also met at the Narsarsuaq Hostel. Lizzy had come from Torssuqatoq Fjord, where her Team Glitterbomb completed a number of new routes. You can read about their adventures here. After spending a week in these two small towns, one really does get to know all of the wanderers. We headed back to Qassiarsuk together.
