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.
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.
