Track down people that have climbed up there. I'd ask Mark Synott, some googling should get you in touch without too much stress.

Pangnirtung is the closest town to fly into before the two week hike into asgard. Before that most people fly into Iqaluit. Its about 3000 dollars round trip. As far as the beta I would hope that your going up there to explore and not repeat routes but if you go here blackdiamondequipment.com/en-u... and blackdiamondequipment.com/en-u... here. You should be able to find some good information to get you started. If I had the money I would love to go!!!! a.brown

Contact Doug Dickens @ doug@climbthreshhold.com. He established the route "The Experience," with Brian during a Geology Expedition to determine the age of the major formations and the amount of time that they have been released by the glaciers there. Groundbreaking work. Ryan Kempf
