Sermilik National Park is located at the northern end of the Baffin Island and on the Bylot Island amid an expansive landscape of glaciers and mountains rising from iceberg-dotted waters of the Arctic Ocean. Sermilik means the ‘place of glaciers’ in Inuktitut. Vast glaciers flow from an ice cap located in the middle of Bylot Island into nearby Eclipse Sound. Our goal was to climb Mt. Thule and some other unclimbed peaks along the Simirlik Glacier and to explore the Bylot Island's vast glacier system. Our group consisted of David Holberton, David Reed and me. We hired Shaty, and Inuk from Pond Inlet, to take us across the Eclipse Sound.
