|A brief description of the North face
route on the West summit: start
from the gravel pit near Slettmo in Lakselvdalen. Follow the dirt road
on the South side of Ellendalen. Turn southwards near the treeline and
climb up to Ellendalsvatnet (500 m). You should carefully consider the snow
conditions before continuing above the lake. Climb the slope south of the lake up to
700 m and you will see the prominent couloir (45-50°) that leads to a notch in the West ridge
(1200 m). From the notch the route traverses the upper part of the West
face towards the South ridge and the summit.
