A telephoto of Saltdalstinden´s
Point 1244 as seen fra Maritind.
Saltdalstindene is a group of
six peaks located to the East of Saltdalen in Ramfjord. They have no
names on the
map, so I have given them the name Saltdalstindene, but I will
investigate this further. They must have a Sami name. We couldn´t
any signs of any previous visitors on the summit of Point 1324 (i.e. no
cairn), so this was probably a first ascent!!
A brief route description: Easy scrambling from Saltdalen up to the
glacier to the North of the summit. The route follows the NE-buttress
to the summit. Easy!
We continued down the South ridge towards Point 1324. Use a rope if you
Climbed together with Bjørn Arntzen: 2. August 1994.
