The Ulamertorsuaq is a 1,858 m–high mountain in southern Greenland, in the Kujalleq municipality.[1]

Geography[edit]

Together with Nalumasortoq and Ketil, this mountain rises in the mountainous peninsula of the mainland which forms the eastern side of the Tasermiut Fjord.[2]

The Ulamertorsuaq has four peaks with heights of 1858 m, 1843 m, 1829 m and 1825 m. The 1843 m high peak is a popular mountain among climbers because of its challenging West Side, a mighty perpendicular cliff.[3] It is also favoured for its firm granite structure, similar to other summits in the region such as Ketil and Napasorsuaq, the latter located on the other side of the Tasermiut Fjord.[4]
