How to get there:
This is a place that
one naturally may visit on a ski trip
from Skåla to Lodalskåpa. See these mountains
for additional information. Route description:
After having passed Bings Brekuppel (in a traverse or via its
top), the normal skiing route will climb the glacier near point
1814. Keeping a bit more to the left and gaining a few meters
more than absolutely neccesary will bring you to this point.
The highest point is essentially where the glacier ends on top
of a huge cliff with significant cornices. Extreme caution must
be shown when skiing near this high point as the snow quite regularly
will break of in large pieces that subsequently avalanches down
the slope below. Loen Rundt:
The route is as desribed above. One should ascend the ridge, and unless you want to
visit this point, traverse on the right hand side and descend down to the saddle connecting
this mountain with Tomefjellet further along.
As you get onto the broad ridge, Lodalskåpa
comes into view.
My team decided that a break
was required in order to fully appreciate the view.
The route continues to
Normally, one would ski to the right of point 1814 and contour around the
distinct ridge at about this elevation. I have however, at least one
time skied to the very highest point for subsequently to ski down, using
caution along the way and stay respectfully away from the cliffs.
