How to get there:
This mountain is quite far from any convenient trailhead.
It is located in the Swedish national park Sarek (Northern Sweden).
The mountain is on the west side of the main Rapa valley, between
this valley and the national park Padjelanta further west. Route description:
We climbed this mountain as part of our hike from the heart
of Sarek (in the Rapa valley) to the Norwegian mining town
Sulitjelma. Ascend more or less directly west from Rapa, gain a glacier,
cross this and continue up to the main summit. We traversed and descended
on the west side to cross out of Sarek and into Padjelanta. Comments:
This climb was part of a long summer hike that started further
north in Norway, crossed into Sweden and further into Sarek from the
north. We subsequently spent several days in the Rapa valley, successfully
recovering a big depot of supplies that we had pulled in on a ski trip
the previous Easter. That Easter trip marked a very successful winter crossing
from Store Sjøfallet (near Porjus) to Sulitjelma.
On both trips I had company of my friends Jostein, Ivar and Ole.
