Info on Nuuk


I'm looking for information on Greenland. I've found information on skiing, but not much on climbing.
I am going to Nuuk for a couple of weeks in February for work. Is it worth me sticking my ice tools in my bag? Are there any easy couloirs I could solo on the mountains around or is there a climbing community in Nuuk? There is a mountain (Store Malene) on the outskirts of the town, does ...

There have been previous posts on Lasik surgery and how it affects climbing. For this thread, all I want are quick survey type responses:

1) What year did you have surgery? Did you have Lasik or PRK?
2) What (if any) problems have you experienced?
3) Overall, are you happy you did it?
4) Has it affected your climbing experiences in any way?
5) Any effects at high altitude (10,000ft+) or in dry mountain ...

I'm curious and have lots of questions about mountaineering/ I'm curious and have lots of questions about mountaineering/

I've been watching on Netflix some movies and reading some books and I have some questions that hopefully someone can answer for me. Please remember I know nothing but what I've recently read so if a question sounds ridiculous, it probably is. Bare with me. I've only read/watched about Everest and K2 so these stem from those mountains.

-Why are the routes through valleys and not along the spines/ridges? I would think you could avoid ...
