Description 

Ascend the ridge from the South/East side with easy hiking. Continue up the ridge until one has to cross through a "gap" at the base of the steeper upper wall. One usually ropes up here.

Continue up the steeper, but relatively easy ( 5.3-5.4) rock. After a few short pitches ( we had a 130ft rope) move up right in a large, wide open corner system ( 5.5 move) to regain the ridge. Thence easily to the huge summit cairn.

WEATHER CAN CHANGE VERY QUICKLY.

Location 

Consult map. From Andalsnes we drove around to the south side, paid a toll at the entrance to a private road and continued on this for a few miles. I recall it was easy to determine where to park.

Protection 

Modest rack. Larger stuff (0.5 Camalot to #2 Camalor) more useful, as is some expendable slings. We used a 130 ft 10mm and a 6mm "pull down" cord for the raps.
