The Great Shark Hunt – Climb and kayak in Greenland

Author(s): Arrampicata Alpinism Climbing
Video Release Date: November 21, 2020

420 kilometers by kayak, 50 kilometers on foot and a 900-meter wall to climb in free climbing. In the summer of 2014 the spider Matteo Della Bordella joins his Swiss friends Silvan Schupbach and Christian Ledergerber for an adventure in pure style by fair means, in the wild eastern Greenland. The three boys set off from Ittoqotormiit, a small village located at the beginning of the Scoresby Sund fjord, and in total autonomy, after a long approach, they reach the dizzying North East face of Shark Tooth: a 900-meter spire of vertical and compact granite, sharp as the tooth of a shark. After having climbed the wall in four consecutive days, sleeping on their portaledge hammocks, the long return to civilization with kayaks awaits them, during which there will be no shortage of surprises – with Matteo Della Bordella, Silvan Schupbach, Christian Ledergerber and Luigi Airoldi
