The Torngat Mountains of Northern Labrador and Quebec
Michael Adler, Virginia Adler, Steve Loutrel, Elizabeth Loutrel, Warren Hofstra, 1975 (first ascent): From a base camp at the end of the Tallek Arm the team proceded up a ravine towards the south-east, initially over rock and then over snow, reaching a pond at around 2000'. Continuing south-east they climbed up another rocky ravine to a broad ridge. The route then proceeds north-east along the broad ridge to the summit. Although steep at times, the route was non-technical the entire way.
The party noted a variety of extremely technical routes up virtually every other ascent route. To quote Michael Adler: "The view from the summit is exceptional offering impressive views of the Nachvak Fiord and the other 5000 foot mountains of the region including d'Iberville to the east. The sheer 3000 foot drop off the north side of the mountain is quite extrordinary. Several impressive knife edges with large chunks missing and a large glacier complete the view."

Ray Chipeniuk, Ron Parker and Erik Sheer, 1978 (first ascent): from the base camp on the McCormick River the team ascended via Gneiss Brook, using ledges high above the right (north) bank to bypass Snowbridge Canyon. They ascended the north-east ridge over gently stepped bedrock and consolidated talus and reached the parymidal east peak in less than 5 hours. Ron parker built a cairn.
Since the west peak appeared to be the higher one, they scrambled and boulder hopped for about a half mile along the overhanging arête to the "mildly sensational" west peak. The west peak has a dramatic 1200' south-east face composed of hard grey gneiss. The team estimated that any person in resonably good condition could do the climb in about 5 hours with minimal exposure or danger from loose rock.
In the opinion of the first ascent team, Margaret Toth affords unparallelled views of Caubvick/d'Iberville, the L1 Glacier, Ice Blue Tarn, the "incredible" Grape Blue Tarn and all the farther scenery of this special area.
Decent was made via the talus slope on the north side of the connecting arête to Rockbowl Tarn and thence down Gneiss Brook.

John Andrachuk and Erik Sheer, 1978 (first ascent): the climbers approached via the north-east ridge, on which John had put up a route the previous day via an ice couloir to about 3000'. They left base camp at 8:00 and reached the start of ice (about 1925') at 10:30. They cramponed up the couloir for 18 leads terminating around 3100'. Above that they climbed another five 150' pitches over class IV rock (Class IV =~ YDS 5.3 - 5.4), topping out on the ridge plateau at 3500'.
They travelled along the ridge about 2 miles to the great col which is the most distinguishing feature of this mountain. Rather than attempting the unsound red gneiss in the col, they traversed along the south-west face until they were opposite the high point of the summit plateau. They then climbed three rock pitches of difficulty YDS 5.1 - 5.4 straight up the face. Two big gendarmes provided the major obstacles on this route.
They reached the summit at 19:00, about 10:30 hours after setting out. They hurriedly built a cairn and took a few photos and as soon as possible started down.
They retraced their route down and over to the col. But hoping to save time, they contoured along the south-east flank of the mountain rather than climbing and following the ridge from the col. In doing this they were slowed by the need to detour around the heads of several steep gullies. After traversing this face for about a mile they realized that with darkness approaching, they might not find where they had left their ice gear, so they decided to remount the ridge and set about extablishing a crude stone shelter for a bivouac.
Sleeping intermittantly from about midnight till 6:00 the next morning, they started down the ridge, while a snow storm was gathering below them. They downclimbed many pitches in a violent windsquall, and finally staggered into camp at 14:00 as the storm was upon them.

Ray Chipeniuk, Ron Parker and Erik Sheer, 1978 (first ascent): The summit team, together with Donna Hackett and Ron Wilson, made their way from the base camp on the McCormick River up Brook Four and Selamiut Brook, over loose angular fragments of rock through the stupendous chasm between Selamiut Tower and Gneissberg. They climbed over a box-canyon lip to Windgap Tarn and then over more talus and some loose snow to the col (about 3700') between the Tower and the ridge to the north leading to Torngasoak. This route essentially circled the Tower from the south and around the west side to the north side (see the map).
From the col they estimated that an alternate route up Tower Brook which drains Tower Tarn on the north side of the Tower would be difficult due to the amount of debris on the headwall above Tower Tarn.
They discovered the north-east face was not suited to climbing, being composed primarily of rotten red gneiss, and so they started up the north-west face. This involved about 300' of scrambling up steep scree and talus but they then faced a cliff band of 400' to 500' of elevation, which ran along the entire face and which could not be circumvented. All five in the party scrambled through the cliffs independently but they soon decided to split the group and Donna and Ron Wilson stayed behind at the cliffs while the other three went on ahead. Moves on this section were no harder then YDS 5.3 and furthermore they thought careful route selection might have reduced the climbing to a matter of scrambling up ledges and gullies.
After surmounting the cliffs, the summit party reached the plateau and arrived at the summit peak about 8 hours after leaving base camp. A cairn was built on the summit which was in a direct line-of-site to their base camp, 4300' below.
The party then descended and rejoined the other members and despite a forced march back to camp, a few members of the group did not return to camp till after 21:30, 14:30 hours after leaving.

From the summit plateau an arête stretches south and becomes the North Ridge of Caubvick/d'Iberville and another
arête heads north between two glaciers to Mount Erhart. This peak is in the very heart of the central Selamiuts.

After about 30 rope lengths of climbing on excellent ice, starting from about 2700', he attained the fractured rock on the south-east ridge. He then scrambled up the few hundred feet remaining to the summit, moving first north-west and then due west. He raised a small cairn.
He returned to camp via the same route arriving at 21:00 after a 12 hour day.
Topographic Map of 5074: Click for map.
Dartmouth College group (John Stix, Jill Fredston, Jim McIntyre and Steve Thompson), 1979 (first ascent): From the Palmer River the group scrambled up the steep western wall of the river valley up the stream gulley at 490303, about 3 miles upstream (south) of their base camp. After reaching the uplands at about 2500', they circled around several small ponds to the north and then approached the ridge leading to Peak 4900 by scrambling up a snow gulley and a talus slope. Heading due west along the broad ridge they encountered a huge ice field which they then crossed. Above the ice field they attained the broad summit of peak 4900 heading slightly south of west from the top of the ice field. A quick lunch was taken as the weather was thickening. Their altimeter read in excess of 5000'.
Peak 5074 was about a mile due south, separated from Preak 4900 by about a 400' drop to a col. They traversed this ridge in steadily worsening conditions of wet snow and near zero visibility and reached the summit of 5074 where they broke out the Dartmouth Outing Club Flag and took the obligatory summit shots.
They headed back across the col towards 4900 and, turning east, recrossed the icefield. Looking for a better route than the snow and talus gulley they had ascended, they found a long 1000' vertical drop snowfield which they glissaded down on their boots and rear ends. After a long day in miserable weather, they found their reward at the end.

Topographic Map of Razorback: Click for map.
Mount Razorback is an immense jagged crest that stands guard on the north at the entrance to Nachvak Fiord. Alexander Ford, whose seminal 1931 expedition mapped this area, said: "Nothing along the whole coast of Labrador is so spectacular". Noel Odell, the geologist and mountaineer on the expedition, upon summiting the west peak in 1931, said: "Without a parallel on all the American coast. ... the situations and scenery were in effect a blend of Norway, the Coolins and the Charmoz, though one hesitates to drive analogies, claimed in moments of exuberence, too far!"
Ray Chipeniuk, Ron Parker and Erik Sheer, 1978 (first ascent): The team was transported by boat to a landing they christened "Bivouac Cove" which was on the ocean side of the mountain about 2 miles north of the entrance to the fiord. The team hiked easily up along a brook to the west for about a mile and then turned north passing Razorback Tarn in about another mile and arrived at Razorback Glacier. Turf gave way to bedrock or stable talus which gave way to firm snow laying over the glacier which could be climbed without kicking steps. The team steered to the east side of the glacier, avoiding the bergschrund, and entered a gully which after about 600'of scrambling led to the east ridge.
They topped out on the ridge and ascended on excellent granite. (A rare species knowm as "charnockite".) The climbing was continuously exposed and demanding. If not for the limited time available every pitch would have been roped, but in the situation only one pitch was roped and another belayed. Otherwise the team soloed "carefully but quickly and masterfully".
The ridge rose in succesive steps, each harder than the last until near the top they reached the crux which offered a choice of a chimney topped by a roof with a window, which would not have permitted a retreat once commited, or a series of very narrow ledges with lie-back corners with no horizontal holds. The latter was chosen and Ray and Erik soloed up past this area to the ridge top from which they belayed Ron up. This 50' pitch was estimated to be YDS 5.4 to 5.6. From there to the summit it was but a pleasnt walk over the rather flat crest.
They arrived at the summit at 5:00 PM with late afternoon sun slanting through snow. Upon observing the narrow ridge which connected the summit to the west peak, Chipeniuk wrote: "Nobody wondered any longer why Odell had chosen not to cross the "Aiguilles Ridge" to Razorback's true summit: it was just one needle-sharp gendarme after another, many of them leaning into space like spectators straining not to miss the climax of an exciting event in a sports arena".
Descent was accomplished by several rappels and some "dicey" downclimbing. They arrived back at the cove at 10 PM but as agreed, their boat had already left with two other climbers and so they established a not-unpleasant bivouac.
Group expeditions and Tours
ve tried to assemble a representative collection of past expeditions and tours to this region. These include some treking tours, a canoe trip, and a hunting guide service. I have no idea of how reliable any of these groups are or how qualified their guides are. Just stuff I found on the web. Caveat emptor! If you find any other interesting listings for past or future guided tours, let me know and I'll include them here.
Torngat Private Search Expedition: Andrew Lavigne's excellent,
if sobering, account of the August 2004 search expedition to Mount Caubvick, organized by Roland Hanel and Jack Bennett,
the purpose of which was to locate the remains of Susan Barnes and Daniel Pauze, who were lost on Mount Caubvick
in August of 2003.
List of Torngat Peaks by Elevation
ost atlases or gazetteers of Canada list only a few of the peaks in the Torngats. But a careful study of the available maps reveals a vast number of peaks, most of then unnamed. The following list includes separate sections for peaks in the Kaumajet Mountains (a small coastal range around Cape Mugford about 40 miles south of Saglek Bay, considered the southern terminus of the Torngats) and the Kiglapait Mountains (a range encompassing the islands and mainland near the village of Nain, another 60 miles to the south).
Peak names: All names listed are names officially recognized by the Canadian government except names listed in quotations e.g. "North Caubvick", which are not officially recognized but are in general use. When there is an unofficial name in use as well as an official name, the unofficial name is included in parentheses after the official name e.g. Mount Erhart ("Margaret Toth").
Unnamed peaks are designated by their elevation, e.g. Peak 5000. Since the table includes both the NTS Map number and the abbreviated UTM coordinates for each peak, it easy to find unnamed peaks (or any peak) on the appropriate maps and when thus qualified, e.g. "Peak 5000, Map 24P01, UTM 328519", gives a unique designation (since there may be several unnamed peaks with the same elevation).
Since many of the peak names are not standardized in the available literature (gazatteers, climbing reports, etc.), and the notation for unnamed peaks varies, it is always best to identify a peak by its elevation and location (UTM or latitude/longitude) in addition to its name.
Elevation and prominence units: All elevations and prominence values are given in feet since the original sources (the NTS maps) for this region use this unit exclusively. Although many atlases and other sources now use meters, we have not converted these data to that unit since the hiker and climber will likely be using the available maps.
Elevations: For peaks with no spot elevation available (and most peaks fall into this category), the elevation of the highest contour surrounding the peak is used. Given that the contour intervals on the maps is in all cases 100', these elevation values will be multiples of 100' and the actual elevation may be up to 100' higher. A plus sign ("+") is added to the elevation value in the list to indicate this uncertainty.
Prominence: For a discussion of prominence, check Aaron Maizlish's excellent site: Peaklist.org. In a nut shell, prominence measures how high a peak stands above its col or saddle to the next higher peak. Many enthusiasts favor prominence as a measure of the "quality" of a peak, and often they use the nick name "Finest" to categorize the most prominent peaks in a particular area. Eliminating low prominence peaks from a list, serves to "weed out" inconsequential bumps that surround prominent peaks. For a prominence map of the Torngats (created by Greg Slayden) showing the 2000+' prominent peaks and the divides (ridge lines) and saddles connecting them, click here: Torngats Prominence Map.
Since prominence values depend on the height of the col to the next higher peak, and since these are known only from the next higher countour shown on the maps, the actual prominence may be up to 100' higher than listed (or up to 200' higher if the peak elevation is not a spot elevation). Prominence values calulated this way are called "clean prominence", and because of this uncertainty, they should be considered lower bounds for the actual prominence.
UTM notation: see above, in the map section for an explanation of UTM and the abbreviated UTM notation used on this page to give locations.
Datum used for locations: All location information (both UTM and latitude/longitude) use the NAD27 Canada datum, since this is used on all the maps. In point of fact, the difference bewtween these values and those given using WGS84 would not be significant given the accuracy of the maps: about 60m east/west and about 220m north/south. Obviously, hikers should not depend on the values given (or any value that can be read from the available maps) to find the exact location of any feature.
First ascent: Where the first ascent of a peak is known, the year of the ascent is listed in the "Ascent" column and a description of the ascent is linked, giving the members of the party, the date and any details of the ascent which are known, such as route and conditions.
Listing criteria: My ultimate goal is to identify all peaks with a prominence of 500' or more (plus any named peaks with lower prominence). However, since the actual prominence of most peaks in this region is uncertain and may be up to 200' greater (see above), I would also hope to identify all peaks with between 300' and 500' of prominence. Given the high relief of the terrain in this area, this would be well nigh impossible. So I have applied some secondary criteria: start with peaks above 4000' and list all of those with 300' or greater prominence (and rank those with 500' or more of prominence). Next, for lower peaks, list those with 500' or more of prominence and work down. As a work in progress, I believe we are very close to the first group (the 4000s) and I am slowly working my way down through the 3000s. For lower peaks I have initially tried to find peaks with 1000'or more of prominence and have listed them.
The List: The following list is built from the same data as the lists on Greg Slayden's site: Peakbagger.com (based on work by Greg and myself) and aside from minor formatting differences, should be identical to Greg's lists. By clicking on a peak name, a page of details from Greg's site is presented in a separate window.
