Climbed several times (at least 5) in April/May/June.
How to get there:
I normally climb this mountain as part of a (more or less)
traditional crossing of the Jostedalen Glacier, the largest
glacier on mainland Europe. The closest approach by car would be
to drive to the Loen lake from the small village of Loen, situated
between Olden and Stryn at the very end of the Nordfjord. However,
the ascent from Loen lake is rather steep and difficult. Route description:
We often ski to Kjenndalskruna from Lodalskåpa on the way
to Høgste Breakulen. One can ski almost to the summit, a short
hike on foot is normal at the very end. The ascent poses no
difficulty when approached from the glacier side.
Ski more or less directly here from
the base of Lodalskåpa. See also the
description above. From here, the route runs to Høgste Breakulen", since
no trip on the Jostedalen glacier can be said to be complete without a vist to this point.
This mountain which is quite easy to climb once
you are skiing on the Jostedalsbreen glacier
has an exceptionally nice view back down to the
lake Loenvatn. This lake has been hit by huge
rockfalls several times in the 20th century. The two first
created monster waves that killed almost all inhabitants
in the valley. The traces from these disasters are clearly
