First ascent of
Main, Emil Imboden and Josef
A brief route
is one of the Lakselvtindene
peaks and is situated to the East of Store
Lakselvtinden and Tomastinden.
Start from Lakselvbukt and climb the gully which leads to Tomasskaret
and "Den Himmelske Freds Plass"
(The Gate of Heavenly Peace). Cross the glacier eastwards and then head
up the South face of
Imbodentinden to the NW ridge and
then summit. Easy.
Climbed with members of Tromsø Klatreklubb 11. March 1979.
seen from Lakselvdalen.
Early January sunshine
A huge slab avalance on the East face of Imbodentinden.
"Slab avalanches account for around 90% of avalanche-related
fatalities, and occur when there is a strong, cohesive layer of snow
known as a
slab. These are usually formed when falling snow is deposited by the
wind on a lee slope, or when loose ground snow is transported
When there is a failure in a weak layer, a fracture very rapidly
propagates so that a large area, that can be hundreds of meters in
several meters thick, starts moving almost instantaneously."
