Ascent Trip Report

After landing on the icecap southeast of Barbeau, our team established camp just north of a broad col 4km W of Griper Peak. That evening, Eric and I traversed a few minor summits and then Griper from E to W, finding ourselves in perfect position for Barbeau's north ridge. We summited at 3AM - see Eric's excellent write-up in his trip report.
