Ascent Trip ReportIn June, 1998 I was part of an expedition to Barbeau Peak on Canada's Ellesmere Island. This summit is at 82° North, only 550 miles from the North Pole, and is the highest point of the Canadian territory of Nunavut. Getting to the remote icecap of Ellesmere Island is a major and expensive undertaking, and our ascent was probably one of the first ten ever made of Barbeau Peak.
