|"Nearer was a symmetrical
graceful summit. Then came the most wildly-shattered, thin
wedgelike ridge I have ever seen, a veritable saw edge." (Mrs.
Le Blond: Mountaineering in the Land of the Midnight Sun, 1908)
A short description of the East face route: Start from Holmbukta in Sørfjorden. Follow Goverdalen for 5-6 km until you see the glacier Goverdalsbreen to the right. Follow the glacier up to Sølvskaret, the saddle between Sagbladet and Goverdalstinden. Beware of crevasses! The East face is a straightforward snow climb in winter. Approx. 45° . See picture below.
Climbed by Bjørn Arntzen and Geir Jenssen 27. March 1983.
