Wind plume coming off Stetinden the day before my ascent. Note the foreground peak is NOT the summit - look carefully at the top of the cloud, and the summit is just visible there.<br>
During my ascent, the wind was relatively calm, but on the descent the wind became so strong that I could not walk across the ridge peak for fear of being blown off. Strong gusts would come from one direction for a few seconds, followed by an equally strong blow from the opposite side of the ridge.
